"Stickmaking - a Complete Course" Revised edition  BEST SELLER!

This book is now BACK IN PRINT!

Book by Andrew Jones and Clive George. The best book on our craft I've seen - covers everything you need to get started - cutting your owns sticks, straightening them, templates (full size) for various handle shapes, carving bird and animal heads, shaping horn handles etc. I wish I'd written it myself! I can highly recommend it for beginners and those with a few sticks behind them already. Great present for anyone who would like to start making sticks.

"The Little Book of Whittling"
Passing time on the trail, on the porch and under the stars.
By Chris Lubkemann.

A fantastic soft back book that shows how to use "green" wood, freshly cut from the bushes, to carve into all sorts of useful items - whistles, flowers, knives and even walking sticks! A great little book for scouts and other youngsters - from nine to ninety year olds!

"Whittling Handbook"
By Peter Benson.

Lovely book showing tools and techniques - a little bit more advanced in many ways than the book above, still great for beginners but also lots of projects requiring a bit more skill. There's a good section on carving dog head sticks if you are interested in that, also how to make whistles, forks, spoons and lots of other interesting ideas. At the price of only £7.95 you can't go wrong!

"Power Carving Manual"
By various authors.

For anyone thinking about starting to carve with rotary or reciprocating carvers this is a brilliant book! If you already use power and want to improve or learn new tricks it will also be of great help.

150 pages covering subjects such as types of carvers and suppliers (mainly American, but many can be bought in the UK). A comprehensive section on burrs and bits is really helpful, along with techniques needed to use them. Many of the subjects covered (with templates) can be adapted for stick heads and there's a nice section on carving a wizard's head on a stick or staff.
The sections detailing how to produce furr and feather details are simply great!
