Since I will be making the stick just for you and its not in stock, I am adding a week or so to make it. I would be happy to put your name or some other phrase on the stick at no extra charge.

In the mountains of the western US there is a little bird that moves through the canyons in family groups. I can usually hear their light "phweet phweet" long before I see them. Never staying on one branch very long they hop and flit nervously usually in pairs or couple of pairs.

In the winter Black Capped Chickadees will come around and they are often accompanied by a Downy Woodpecker. I don't know why. But they seem to be friends.

So, when I cleaned up the maple stick I found a few weeks ago, I decided to dedicate it to the Black Capped Chickadee that I see every time I go into the mountains.

The stick in the photo is maple but I will do this stick on service berry or birch wood as well.

Shipping policies

I use almost exclusively the U.S mail--unless the postal service of the country the customer is in won't carry a walking stick. Then I go to Fed Ex or UPS. Each stick is wrapped in paper and then wrapped in bubble wrap. To date I have only had one stick arrive broken.

I cannot be responsible for delays due to customs or local delivery carriers.

Additional policies


Almost all sticks are made to order. Tell me if you want your name on the stick or some other special message. Usually there is no charge unless it is a long detailed message.

If you want me to make a custom stick with a subject that is not on my listings page please send artwork or samples of what you want me to draw and I will quote a price and a timetable. Give me a couple weeks.

I will personalize a stick I have posted: Put your name on it or a date. No charge for this. I will draw something I did in the past on a new stick. So, don't hesitate saying you want me to draw one that is not currently posted again. Just for you. No problem.

Please allow a couple weeks for custom orders.
