Suitable timbers are covered in detail as well as alternative materials such as ram's horn, antler, buffalo and cow's horn.

About Author

Andrew Jones has spent his life as a farmer in West Wales. An uncle cultivated his interest in making sticks and encouraged him to enter his work in local craft shows. Andrew specialises in making horn crooks and Cardigan walking sticks. Clive George has had a life-long interest in stickmaking and a move to a small holding in Wales led to a fortuitous meeting and eventual collaboration in this book.
