4.0 out of 5 stars Recommended
A well written handbook with great pictures and no nonsense, easy to understand explanations.

The one thing that soon became apparent was the absence of long winded historical text, so often introduced to 'pad' out a book.

As a carver and stick maker this is one of those books that I keep to hand all the time, to dip into as required.

It may only be A5 in size, but great things can come in small packages. This is one of those books.

This review is from: The Craft of Stickmaking (Paperback)
I've only just started making my own sticks and would recommend this book for anyone in a similar position. The instructions are clear and interesting and encourage one to have a go. 'I can do that' is the impression one gets. And it's true. I've made two sticks with the advice given therein and am pleased with them both. There are more advanced items well described which I am sure I - and those with more advanced knowledge - will find useful.
A thoroughly enjoyable and useful book.
