Topic tags/keywords: almond wood search almond wood almond lumber almond staff almond stick

I am searching for some Almond Wood to make a walking stick. I have a client who is adamant in having the entire walking stick made from Almond Wood and I have not had much luck in finding long, solid pieces. I need the finished piece to be 48” tall or taller, 1.5-2” thick along the bottom shaft and if possible 3” on the top so I can carve some almond flowers and leaves. I could use either raw/live edge stock (branches, trunk w/ bark) or milled and will even consider decent length pieces to assemble for the entire length. I am desperate, as I have contacted all of my resources who deal in unusual woods and even almond orchards but no one has anything to offer that I can use.

If you know of a source that can help me for a current or even a near future supply of such material, please drop me a PM here at LJ’s or have them contact me directly at meiliemh@hotmail.com.

Thanks in advance for your time & effort!

mellie check with rustfever. He has gotten a lot of orchard woods at different times or he might know of someone who could have some.

With the water situation in California, a bunch of almond trees might be coming down.

Hello Karson,
Thanks for the info. I will try to reach them and I am also re-instating my inquiry to past resources. One never knows when the unusual inquiry actually gets a bite.
