The Maple has been stained to a very dark brown but allowing some lighter colour to show through.
This stick has a rich deep red and warm white Padauk “thumb through” handle. This been made from heart and sapwood, meaning that while it is two colours it is the same piece of timber.
It has been finished with high gloss varnish on the shaft and shellac sealer and wax on the handle.
The price includes postage and packing to UK mainland addresses.
Unique hand-crafted sticks
Buying one of my hand-made walking sticks means owning a unique item. Each one is designed and made by me in my workshop in rural Bedfordshire and as far as I am aware no-one else on planet Earth makes sticks like mine.
Making the sticks
The process of making a stick takes up to three weeks and each stick is guaranteed to be one of a kind. I will make sticks that are similar, but each individual stick has a character all its own.
- The shafts of the sticks are made from sustainably sourced hardwoods from around the world and are finished with either varnish or high quality wax polish.
- The handles come in different shapes and styles and again are made from sustainably sourced hardwoods or rosewoods. Each handle is turned by me and finished to the same exacting standards I apply to the shafts.
- The handles are secured to the shafts using a stainless steel rod.
I can make to order
Sticks can usually be made to order if you would like a particular timber, subject to availability of the wood. I would need at least 4 weeks’ notice to make a bespoke stick as the materials have to be very carefully sourced and prepared before I can start making. Please contact me for details.
Unique and useful - for yourself or for a loved one
These unique walking sticks are both an aid to walking or hiking and a talking point with those you meet on the highways and byways. They are also an heirloom ready to be passed down to the next generation.
