How to Make a Good Staff Quickly
Have you ever been out on a walk and have slid and fallen? You probably needed a staff to prevent that! Some people make or buy staffs for walking. Others get them for weapons or quarter staffs. Whatever you use it for, a staff can be very useful.
Find a stout stick about the same height as you .It should be made from wood that isn't bendy or brittle.
Cut it off using some sort of saw or clippers.
Take the stick back to a dry, airy environment and skin it down using a knife of a sander.
Leave it to dry for about a day before skinning it again.A planer is good because it makes the wood smooth but a penknife could be used.
Leave it in a warm, dry place for about a week.To check if it's dry, hit it gently off another piece of wood. It should make a nice crackling sound.
To finish it off, you could engrave your name or something into the wood this can be done using a knife or an engraving tool .You can also stain or paint the staff. If possible, you could laminate it.
QuestionDoes it have to be hollow?Community AnswerNo, in fact the staff would be much stronger if it were solid. Try to find strong, straight wood for this project.Thanks!
- It's best to prepare your stick during winter.
- If you are going to use this staff for fighting, tape up the ends. This will reduce the tendency for the wood to split. Duct tape or masking tape is best. Electrical tape is a good grip surface at the top.
- After a windstorm, look around. Young trees that have been pulled out of the ground make interesting staffs. you can also search lakes and rivers for some interesting driftwood. The root system makes an interesting top. But only if natural causes have removed them from the ground. Don't go digging up young trees!
- A light staff is good, because it's easier to swing or spin.
- The staff is a dangerous weapon. Be careful with it. If sparring with friends,do it gently and slowly.
- If practicing spinning it round, do it in an open area. You don't want to hit anyone.
