I always have a good selection of walking sticks available for sale at sensible prices, please give me a ring on 01425 475129.

I am not currently making buffalo horn or rams horn sticks but I know a man who does, see below.

I like natural one-piece sticks but I do have several antler sticks and I'm happy to supply cow horn handles to order. Wooden crooks or carved heads are also possible.

I'm also a woodturner and have friends who create other craft items including pyrography, see photos.

horn sticks are made from natural materials and may sometimes contain small blemishes and flaws which mean they will not win in show competitions. the prices above may reflect this and some may not be the perfect shape but are still very servicable. these pictures are representative and others may be available, photos sent on request.

the umbrella walking stick was a coomision for a city gent from london. I don't usually like commisions but this subject really fired my imagination
   
   

I also give talks on stickmaking and carving to local clubs and societies.

I am the organiser of the Ringwood-Woodcarvers

(www.ringwood-woodcarvers.org)


I am also the Secretary of the Hants & Dorset Stickmakers.
I give talks in my local area but now that I’m retired from full time employment I can travel further if my expenses are paid.  My fee for a 1 hour local talk,  within 10 miles, is £40.
My talks are only roughly scripted and each one is slightly different, tailored to the audience and very much ad-libbed with an injection of humour.
They are mainly about stickmaking and woodcarving and are illustrated with examples of how it’s done.
You may be interested to know that I am also Chairman of an event, In Ringwood Hampshire each September, which supports traditional crafts, it’s known as:
 The “Dorset Do” (www.dorset-do.co.uk)
Please contact me if you need further details.
