Understand Our Woods

The variety and character of wood is a natural phenomenon that offers an astonishing array of exquisite beauty. For handcrafted products like our walking canes and walking sticks, wood variations are like an artist’s palette in our woodworkers’ hands. Our wood artists carefully select each piece, and every walking stick or cane that we make is an original, unique creation.

Thanks to the variance inherent in all wood, you can know that a Brazos Walking Stick or Walking Cane is truly one-of-a-kind. Each of our walking sticks is individually crafted from the finest woods including sassafras, hickory, sweet gum, iron bamboo, and many other exotic and native trees. Each walking stick or cane is created by our artisan craftsmen in central Texas, not far from the Brazos River.
We use many beautiful woods with fine finishes and natural appeal. The warmth of simple, handcrafted excellence is inherent in all species we work with and these characteristics cannot be duplicated or replicated with any other material. Wood is full of wonder.

Here at Brazos Walking Sticks, our woods provide “The Feel of Nature”TM with each of our handcrafted sticks. Please feel free to email inquiries to info@brazossticks.com. Or call toll free 800-581-4352 with any questions. The following is a list of woods we currently use:
