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 email@example.com.
Thanks in advance for your time & effort!
