My fair pricing guarantee is that I have lowed the price of sticks that were faster to carve due to the wood type and I have lowered the price of sticks that are not as superior of carvings as others. While I am very happy with all of the carvings there are times that some just are not as good to me as others and therefore I lower the price to reflect my thought. This provides opportunities for people to get great deals on hand carved walking sticks. The higher the price the higher the quality of carving or the harder it was to carve.

Great quality. Fast service. Flexible. I'm planning to buy several more of these in the coming months and years for friends. They also came with leather straps strung through a hole in the stick which I wasn't expecting but really like. Thanks!

Much bigger than expected. LOVE the hidden drawers. I'll be hiding vintage cuff links in them for my husband's birthday. Thank you! I will definitely be back when I have another male to buy for!

This Hickory stick was upgraded to a wood spirit Hickory. It is a hard wood to carve in but is stunning when finished. Now I must go put a finish on this beauty.

About

Part time carver full time husband, father, and teacher.

Well, a little about myself and my hobby. My name is David Egesdal and my wife's name is Lacy. We have two boys, Hunter and Carver. My wife and I decided to make the Ozarks our home in 2009. We both loved the atmosphere of the Ozarks and the family that we had become part of at Sonrise Baptist Church. The heritage of this area is a major attraction to me as well. Ever since I was young I had an interest in crafts from woodworking to leather working and now my hobby of woodcarving. I see art in everything that we do and it is a shame that our culture has limited it to specific areas. From my undergraduate degree of Youth Ministry with a Bible Minor to my masters in Biblical Counseling to my current Math Certification for teaching I see that each has an art of their own with techniques and skills specifically developed for their application to the world in which we live. As I consider the more specific arts that are universally agreed upon I have to say that I favor woodcarvings. I started carving about three years ago as a healthy alternative to watching television and playing video games. There is something about creating an object from a block of wood that is satisfying.
It has been said by many that the carving was not carved but rather the pieces hiding it have been removed. I suppose that this is not only a statement that can be made about carvings but also a statement made about each of our lives in general. As the years go by we began to understand who we are more and more. Most of us carry many masks that hide the real us. With time the hope would be that we would learn to live and be as God intended for us to be. The sad truth is that many people keep their masks piled on.
I started woodcarving after visiting the Ozark Whittlers and Woodcarvers club in Springfield. I took to the art quite naturally and found myself buying a couple knives the first night and carving for about 15 hours the first week. After finishing my Graduate degree my wife and I moved to Ozark and I began doing woodcarving on walking sticks and found them to be quite enjoying. Now we live in Sparta, Mo and I have started a small business called Creation Carvings. I started a website at www.creationcarvings.com and at www.handcarvedwalkingsticks.com, Lord willing I will be able to do more craft shows each year. Woodworking has been very rewarding as it gives a sense of satisfaction in being able to see the finished project. My future plans are to continue carving and perhaps someday start chainsaw carving, basket weaving, painting, pottery and furniture making.

Thanks For Reading,
David Egesdal
