This is a staff I recently made as a commission piece for someone who had seen some of my other products. I use a pine dowel to make the shaft which I hand turn on a lathe. I then hand cut and carve some Birch faced plywood for the finials. Once assembled I add a lead crystal orb to finish off the Staff. The staff takes about 3 weeks to make from time of order. Every stick is made by hand and no two will ever be exactly the same. Due to the length of the staff unfortunately the shipping costs are quite high. Only a few carriers will accept packages over 120 cm, and they do add a premium. I have now started adding a brass screw connector in the centre which has allowed me to reduce the shipping costs. I am happy for you to collect from my home near Colchester for free.
