Summary

Sticks are essentially practical aides but are also works of art that often become integral to the owner.  They have to be strong and reliable, but are beautiful too.  This essential book covers all these qualities - it explains the traditional principles and methods of stickmaking, but also celebrates the designs and ideas behind these creations.  Written by an award-winning stickmaker, it provides a full acount of this age-old craft.  Topics covered include materials, equipment and tools required to make a variety of sticks from timber, antler and horn; stick types and shapes; preparing timber to make handles and shanks; straightening shanks; making joints and exhibiting and competing.  This new book will be an inspiration for all stickmakers, both new and old and will be of great interest to countryside enthusiasts, shepherds, farmers, woodworkers and working dogs owners. Superbly illustrated with 349 colour photographs.
