I would think that the best way to do that is to plant a bunch of acorns, and see which ones come up. You might try putting several of the acorns together, and as they grow, twist them around each other. It will probably take a couple of years.
This is kind of cool for growing a fairly quicker walking stick, check out this site, scroll back way down, almost to the bottom of the blog, and look for the Cabbage walking stick. http://medusasgarden.blogspot.com/ I don't know what zone it is in, but, if it's annual for you, it will grow 4-7 ft. in just one growing season, and you can train it to grow into a cane shape. It still needs months for it drying before it can be worked on though. You can find cabbage walking stick seeds various places. Wow, this blog shows some really interesting plants in there.
If the seeds are hard shelled, soak them in vinegar in a closed container over the winter. Rinse and plant in early
spring. Maybe even keep container in the fridge in case they need to be subjected to cold first. Some seeds do, and it shouldn't hurt to be in the fridge, not the freezer.
