Hand Carved Ted and Black Grouse double head in Lime wood Hiking Or Walking stick on a super Cab Ape shank. Hand carver stick featuring a Red and Black Grouse carved in lime. This is mounted on a the most amazing shank! Overall length is approx 1.4 m. Fitted with a brass "ultra" ferrule.I have been making sticks for about five 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.
