This set of rune staves was made during the waxing moon (the week up to the full moon). In my workshop I cut the branch in approx 2 1/2 inch lengths for each stave then split each piece in quarters. They are then lightly whittled then hand sanded to the desired finish. The individual rune symbol is then burned onto the 24 birch pieces. While I am burning the rune onto the stave I chant the name of the rune that I am burning to awaken the stave to the rune magic/energy. I do this for all 24 runes. The staves are then oiled with linseed oil and, again, I chant the name of the rune I am oiling. This set was oiled 3 times before the full moon. During the waning moon I oiled the set 2 more times. I then make the leather pouch. The pouch is hand stitched with artificial sinew. There are glass, brass, crushed amber, and shell beads hanging from the bottom of the pouch and there is some room to add your own personal beads. The pouch is held closed with a deer antler button which I cut and polished from a shed antler I found.
I want to express that as you work with the runes the bark may peel or fall off. I recommend oiling them once a month.
Each stave is approx. 5/8" wide X 2 3/8" long. The pouch is approx 3 1/2" high X 4 3/4" wide.
Of the tree Ogham, birch is the tree of new beginnings and opportunities, of healing, to do with Air & Water.
