Sycamore, like Alder, Ash and Hawthorn, has an uninteresting outer bark which we always remove.  The debarking is done slowly and carefully and reveals a warm light brown underbark which has a very fine grain running through it.  Nice strong light walking sticks can be made from Sycamore.  It is relatively easy to source suitable shanks with ends that can be shaped into good looking comfortable handles.

This is a lovely stick probably more suited to a female owner.  It weights just 7 ounces but, nonetheless, is 35.5 inches long.  It enjoys all of the normal characteristics of the species, e.g. nicely coloured and marked shank.
