Many of you have seen these Ogham Staves pictured elsewhere. They have been gathered from the actual trees over a period of about six years, in Scotland, England, Canada, and the US.
The staves are cut the length from heel of palm to tip of middle finger of my right hand. They are dried, then stripped of bark, smoothed with a smooth stone, and sanded with ultra-fine sandpaper to a soft finish. Then they are rubbed with hazelnut oil, and the Ogham symbols are inked on.
The Word Ogham included with the pictures is my own rendering of traditional meanings.
