I cut cut this stick today as I thought it'd make a nice short walking stick due to the unique spiral make up of the stick. If like to remove the bark to show the wood underneath an then give a few coats of oil. What I'd like to know is will it be easier/best for the wood if I remove the bark now while the wood is still green or dry it first and then try and remove it?
also if anyone has a piece of antler going to use for a handle that they're willing to post for a few quid or a do action to charity I'd be pleased as I've not got anything suitable at the moment.
Thanks in advance guys.
