Hi, My name is Roger hence the silly username, I am not pole-turner who lives in the woods, but a retired (through disabilty) carpenter/joiner, I have approx 8 blackthorn sticks cut, plus various other woods, 4 ready for handles/thumbsticks, not long moved into house, so worshop not fully working, looking forward to shooting-the-stick with you all.
