David Dawson introduces the would-be stick maker to the craft. "The author has spent his working life in engineering. Firstly as an apprentice and finally as a director with special responsibility for jig and tool design and manufacturing methods. Despite the fact that every working day involved dealing with steel and its alloys, etc., there was always an interest in working with wood and the enjoyment in working with woodcutting tools. It was not surprising that, on retirement, it seemed a natural progression to find a hobby using wood as a medium, and his thoughts turned to woodcarving." Chapters include: Stick collecting (shanks) and tools; Materials; Seasoning (drying out); Straightening; One-piece sticks; Handles (heads); Shanking (sticks); Tipping and ferruling; Finishing the head (handle); Stick design variation; Modern tools. Interesting and useful.
