Kiln Dryed sticks
Kiln Dryed sticks

Our sticks are locally harvested outside of Eugene , Oregon in a sustainable fashion. We work with a local reforestation program called “Oregon Woodlands Association.” We use invasive under growths so the native hardwoods can reestablish themselves. From there it goes to the kiln. The kiln does a number of things including making sure there are no bug infestations.

Shaping the handles
Shaping the handles

We use our band saw in a very unusual way. It's almost more like “sculpting than sawing dimensional lumber. It takes some experience to look at a crooked stick and visualize it being just that right shape to make a piece of functional art out of it ….... and then sometimes a wood spirit peering out from behind the bark.

The "Cropper"

After the broom is finished, it goes to the “cropper” where it is trimmed to the desired shape. We have several croppers....... Some are better for straight cuts, some rounded cuts and some for angles. These tools are also from the 1800's and have been reconditioned and rebuilt on metal frames.
