Yew Wood Wanted For A Cane......Just searching
by Richard Racy
I don't have a story. I have a question.
I want to make a cane of yew wood. (Sometimes, I'm a bit unsteady walking.) I'd love to have one colored and figured like the Sacred Totem sculpture on the site, especially with purple spots!
I'm not sure where to get a supplier of yew wood. I'd need a rod at least 1 inch in diameter and 30 inches long or longer (to allow working excess). I'd love it if the handle were already turned into a crook, but not if it had been "worked on" or "finished." I'll do that. Do you know of anybody who supplies yew wood in rods suitable for making into a cane? Thank you.
P.S.: I'm Irish and an ordained minister, and I love the fact yew was considered a symbol of eternal life!

Hey that is new to me: Thanks!
Yew the symbol of eternal life!
