Ash walking sticks

Postby Vushtrri » Mon Aug 08, 2016 10:29 am

...a simple question..I hope!

Never done any steaming before, but am I right in assuming this is the best way to form the crook shape on an Ash walking stick....and if so, what's the best way of doing it?

Ben Law describes this in his book on country wood crafts. He only refers to a walking stick with a single bend, but I imagine that with a bit of ingenuity you could add another curve to give a "nose out" handle. Also have a look at the "Woodland Sticks" channel on YouTube. Best of luck!
