    Default How to Construct a Staff

    How to Construct a Staff for Hiking

    This simple guide will help you to make your own hiking staff before you hit the road:

    • First of all, pick and cut a straight 6-foot sapling that is approximately ½” round at the broadest end.
    • Then, put the sapling in a cool dry place. Wait for 3 or 4 weeks before doing anything further with the fresh wood.
    • Cut the stick to 5’6” long.
    • Then, remove the bark carefully. The bark over the second 12” may be left alone to provide you with a better hold on your hiking staff.
    • Next, trim off any knots until the stick feels fairly smooth.
    • Mark at 1 foot intervals beginning at the top (the thicker end).
    • Mark out the top 6” at 1” spaces.
    • Finally, treat all of it with oil stain or preservative.

    These steps are, of course, rather excessive for a simple walking stick that you employ for a little extr support. But kind of nice hiking around places carrying an interesting looking stick that’s a cut above something you just put together from an old branch in the woods.

    Aye Lady D, not to mention always cleanse any tool, when I first got my athame (which is a bayonet to an M16) it sliced me twice before I cleansed it.


    didn't like that I bought him for a lower than marked price I figure ;p
