Dress Sticks/Crooks
« on: August 22, 2015, 08:40:15 pm »
 I have for sale 3 dress sticks made by my father. The wood used is all sourced locally in the Scottish Borders, but the horn used is bought in.

1) A thumb stick, which is made from a hazel stick and the top is made from antler from a roe deer. Height to the thumb groove is 1.41m. Price is 50 plus postage

2) A buffalo horn stick, which is also made from a hazel stick. The total height of the stick is 1.33m. Price is 60 plus postage.

3) A carved wooden stick which has a squirrel carved into the chestnut wood of the handle. The shaft like the other 2 is hazel. The total height of this stick is 1.45m. Price is 75 plus postage.

I am unable to attach any photos due to the file sizes being too big, so for any more information or photos please email me at shankendfarming@gmail.com

Thanks
Kate

They look great.  I'm hoping to try my hand at making some this winter from wood only.

Hi Carse Goodlifers. I hope you enjoy having a go at stick dressing. My dad started out with wood and then progressed to horns and antlers. There is a stick dressing class both at the local High School and in the nearest village - perhaps there are local classes near you?
