I do have a book for sale. Click on the book above to purchase

It is available in Paperback ($11.99), Hardcover ($19.99) or eBook ($2.99)

The book describes in detail each stick carved, where the ideas came from, and is illustrated with many photos.



I did set up an Etsy account.  You can purchase items there.


I have small crosses available.  Each are three inches long.  They are carved from one piece of wood, with a moving crossbar.  They are available for $7 each, which includes shipping and handling.

Family Heirloom Walking Canes:


I have carved different walking canes that are now available. Some do separate out into two different pieces.   Some of the canes have marbles inserted in the center.  The canes are carved from a variety of woods: cherry, mahogany, walnut, poplar and catalpa.

I can cut to exact length needed. Now, they are now approximately three feet long. To make them more personable, I can wood burn a name or message in some of the canes.

The canes cost $1,000 each, which includes shipping and handling.


I also can carve a simple walking stick, approximately 4 feet in length.  I will carve your name into the staff, towards the top.  These walking sticks come in a natural hickory, or a simple dowel from poplar or mahogany.  Prices range from $50 – $100.
