|Walking Stick Picture|
The weather has not been dry every day, so these sticks have had to put up with rain and humidity on many days. I suppose they would dry quicker in a sheltered location, but I'm retired and in no big hurry.
The peeled walking stick's cracks are getting more obvious, and new cracks are appearing. The bad crack is at the top end, which I planned on removing part of to make it a comfortable length for myself. I'll just have to give it time before I decide whether it is something to work on or something to trash.
I have no idea what variety of wood these are, but they feel and look like they are strong enough to end up as sturdy walking sticks.
