    Here is my Newest Completed Hiking Stick:

    July 12 Maple Walking Stick

    I made it from a Branch taken from the Giant Maple Tree that is located on the Grounds of the Buddhist Temple Community Garden that I like Volunteering for.

    I kept it for a week in my Hot Car to try to Dry It Out as best I can in Hopes that when I take the Bark off that the Outer Wood Ring would not Split Apart like what happened to my Canada Day Maple Stick.

    Keeping it in the Hot Car for a Week did not matter so the Wood Split again which I had to fill in with Wood Putty.

    I then Sanded it smooth and gave it a Coat of Varnish then applied Handle and Foot Pad.
