How to make drum sticks?

Hey guys I need some help with making drum sticks.

What is the best padding to use for the head and handle?

And I've seen sticks with some elaborate tape work with patterns. How is the tape work done?
Example:

Any tips or ideas for me?

ohmigosh, those are NICE!! My tape work is limited to wrapping the drumstick with electrical tape in rows.

This makes me want to bust out a set of drumsticks RIGHT NOW!!

I stick to the same way of making sticks as I was shown years ago - using denim from old jeans as padding.

It looks like the diagonal tape work is laid first, then the rows are on top.
