SO MUCH Going On: New Sticks, Old Sticks, a Character Cues Tournament, Leather Grips, Leather and Bark Rings, 6 Sassafras and Ironwood Live Edge Sticks in the Works, Omigosh!

I also cut a some very crazily-figured black cherry, some ordinary old walnut, and paper birch, which will all complement the new sticks in various ways. Some of the sticks will be one-piece, so the only complement will be like: “Holy shit! You’re beautiful!”

We send emails when something so cool is happening we figure everyone should know. New sticks. New books. That sort of thing.

A Recent Amazon Review
This book cemented my absolute amazement at the writing skill of Clayton Lindemuth! He takes you down a road that is at first somewhat depressing as he builds the characters, and draws you in while bringing you to a greater understanding of the human condition, then wraps it up with a heartwarming ending that will leave you not only wanting, but CRAVING more! I give it 5 stars only because that’s the highest rating allowed! Thank you, Clayton, for sharing your amazing talent!!!!
