It is very helpful if you can find a class that will teach you all the ins and outs of carving a walking stick. That way you can learn from the mistakes and experiments of all the people who have been doing this for years.
But for a first time try, before you make that investment of your time, try carving a walking stick on your own. You can either design the carving yourself, or choose from the many patterns online and in local stores for carving a walking stick. Here are some tips that will help to guide in the process:
· You can practice both carving a walking stick when the wood is still green and the bark is on, or remove the bark, sand the stick and then carve. It depends on what you want the final appearance to look like—smooth or rustic.
· Start at the top of the stick. Position the work so that it faces you. A shaped, hand laced leather grip and sling makes the job much more comfortable and increases your endurance with the project. Otherwise, you will become fatigued easily.
· If you are just experimenting, you can easily use your own knives and tools. After you become more skilled, you should invest in specific wood working tools.
· Always try to cut away from you.
· You can use copper or brass nails, antique upholstery tacks, or pieces of beads and other jewelry to accent the final product!
