Description

Because Alder is not prone to splitting, is extremely water resistant and is light in the hand it is a popular wood for stickmaking.
However, the bark is dull and featureless so I often remove it and expose the heartwood which has a warmish pale yellow hue. Occasionally, there are speckled marks which add to the charm of the stick.
In instances where the underbark is retained, the shank has a deep dark antique look.
