  • Castor wood a.k.a. Florida Bamboo

    Does anybody know how I can obtain some Castor wood? ???
    I was at a carving show not to long ago and a gentleman there was carving walking sticks out of this wood. It seemed pretty easy and it looked real nice. Does anyone have any info on this type of wood or had experiance with this?

    I would be interested in getting some to try my hand at walking stick carving.

      Not quite. The idiots in Maryland are keeping the kids in school until June 21. A lot of schools don’t have a/c so they will send them home early.
