When you make your own walking sticks, you must choose between using dry wood or green wood. Using green wood often results in stronger, more customizable finished products, but the wood must dry completely before you can stain or seal it. Working with green wood is a significant time commitment, because you need to dry the wood slowly to prevent it from warping or cracking. Be prepared for the drying process to take a year or longer.
