Note that the top of the stick is burl and not the entire stick. The dark section of the stick is actually the live edge of the cherry burl, the shape and length of each stick is dictated by the burl itself. I follow the grain of the wood that leads to the burl, cutting between cracks and bark inclusions. Each stick is sanded very smooth and treated with mineral oil and bees wax. For usable length please see the last photo.
