Devil Sticks

Instead of the usual rounders bat, candlestick or dibber, James decided to turn a Devil Stick from Sweet Chestnut on the pole lathe. 

Although he's quite an expert and we spent some time getting the weight and balance right I think the sticks used to manipulate it needed some rubber or silicone on them for it to work really well.
Could be a good idea for something different to make on the lathe?

Devil sticks are great, but I never learnt to use them to a high enough standard. I found that using normal sticks were difficult, and having lots of friends into juggling I bought sets of silicon covered sticks that worked a lot better.
