Remember those candy straws filled with honey? Who knew that Honeysuckle produced wood with the same golden yellow color? About 5 feet 6 inches tall, when I saw how the branches had grown together to make an interesting knot I knew it would make an interesting walking stick – if you hold it just below that knot the knot makes a natural guard to protect your knuckles. Honeysuckle seems to be pretty strong and takes a very high polish. Spar Varnish really brought out the color variations in the wood – spalting produces streaks of blue-green which are very attractive. Thanks for looking, questions, comments and critiques are always welcome.
