I have for sale a unique American Woodcock headed stick in Lime wood. A superb Hiking Or Walking stick on a super Black Cherry shank. Hand carver stick featuring an American Woodcock, sometimes called the "timberdoodle" by Americans. The American Woodcock is smaller and paler then our native woodcock with the same markings but with more white flashes.This is mounted on a the most amazing shank! The shank is a very dark piece of Black Cherry and this really sets the head off. The Black Cherry is very similar imo to blackthorn, same dark red/brown colour and knobbly look!
Overall length is approx 1.45 m. Fitted with a brass "ultra" ferrule.I have been making sticks for about six years now. I was taught by two of the best, imo, stick makers in the country. I make all the sticks myself, no plastic or resin, each is carved in solid wood. Usually I use lime but I sometimes make sticks in oak, ash, walnut and cedar of Lebanon etc. All my sticks are made in my workshop here on the beautiful Gower peninsular, all made within half a mile of the sea on the edge of the largest saltmarsh in Europe. Hence my tendency to concentrate on birds we see on the marsh or in nearby woods. I do make other types of stick but bird sticks are my personal favourite. My stick have travelled the world, I supply a shop in Boston USA as well as an outlet in Scotland.
I have a number of regular collectors and 90% or more of my sticks are made as commissions. When I get asked to make something unusual or new, I tend to make two so that in the event of an accident, and they happen often, I have another to proceed with.
I do not have a website but you can see further examples of my work on Facebook under Wuzzlewood and on Instagram. Why not follow me on Instagram and see my new creations as I tend to post pictures of these regularly. Sometimes I can accommodate a rush job depending on my current workload. Thank you for showing an interest in my hobby!
