yew sticks, yew wood, yew branches

A selection of yew wood for carving. Yew wood is very attractive, making it popular for wands, runes, Ogham sticks, frames for scrying mirrors, and other divination tools. But it should never be used for anything you eat or drink from as it is toxic. While carving a wand from yew, it is recommended to wear a mask so no dust is breathed in, and hands washed thoroughly.

#1 is 7.5" long, 3/4" thick, and slightly curved.

#2 is 11.5" long and 3/4" thick with a set of eyes that will make a nice handle.

#3 is 12" long, and 1/2" thick, with an overall curve.

#4 is a stang, 13" long and 5/8" thick, with a tight fork and overall curve.

#5 is 12.5" long and 3/4" thick with an overall curve and a small fork.

#6 is 13.5" long and 7/8" thick, with an eye near the tip.

#7 is 14.5" long, 1/2" thick, with a slight wavy shape.

#8 is 15" long and 1" thick, hefty weight with an overall curve.

#9 is a fork 15" long, 3/4" thick and curved.

#10 is 10" long and 3/4" thick with a big eye on the handle.

#11 is 6" long and 3/4" thick, fairly straight, with eyes near the tip.

Yew is a very strong wood and was once highly prized for carving bows. In England, huge ancient yews are found in graveyards, perhaps planted there to discourage grazing animals because it is poisonous. In addition, the tree is thought of as a symbol of immortality. The wood or leaves were laid on graves as a reminder to the departed spirit that death was only a pause in life before rebirth. Yew is associated with death and rebirth and is appropriate for funeral wreathes and memorial plantings.

Yew are sacred in druid traditions and a tree that has a long association with witches. It is connected with divination and astral travel and anything that relates to communication or travel between realms. Yew may be used to enhance magical and psychic abilities, and to induce visions. Although NOT recommended, (toxic smoke) yew has been burned during spells to raise the dead.

Smoke free, cat free home.
