Canes made from Chestnut Wood at the Stick and Cane Shop


At the Stick and Cane Shop we have a variety of sticks and canes available in different woods. One of our popular varieties is Chestnut. This wood is hard-wearing and can be worked beautifully into a variety of styles of canes. It is sourced from the genus Castanea, which comprises eight or nine species of deciduous trees and shrubs in the beech family Fagaceae. These trees are shrubs are all native to temperate regions of the Northern Hemisphere.  Chestnut also belongs to the same family as the oak and beech and its trees are of moderate growth rate, giving us a type of wood that is strong and stable - an excellent choice of material for any stick or cane!

Chestnut wood is beautiful in both its natural and worked forms, it can be easily worked resulting in sticks that have been crafted to stunning effect. So whether you are looking for a traditional crook handled stick, a hiking stave, a thumb stick, or a coppice knob stick, we have a delightful and varied assortment of sticks and canes available in Chestnut wood. Many of our Chestnut Sticks are also harvested from sustainable forests. 

So if you are looking for a new stick or cane this season, and want one made from a traditional natural material, be sure to check out the full range of Chestnut Walking Sticks available at the Stick and Cane Shop.
