The TWIG is made by Justin Skaggs, Skaggs Woodworks, who is a non-indigenous stick-maker in Philadelphia, PA. It is made in the likeness of sticks made throughout history. All Skaggs Woodworks' sticks are made from Hickory trees cut in Northern Pennsylvania. Each stick is handcrafted over the course of many months.
The TWIG is something that came from my imagination. I planned a trip to India and I wanted to bring a stick with me. The 32-inch design was made to fit both hands comfortably without sacrificing the full stick feel. The other main point of focus was the head width. I always feel that if a stick cannot hold a full sized ball, then it is not worth having. This is why I made a 4-inch wide opening and modeled the frame after a box stick.
The TWIG is not bent using the same methods as a full-sized stick. I employ methods used in the construction of wooden boats to bend the smaller pieces, which allows me to be more resourceful and less wasteful when consuming raw wood.
Do not leave it on your wall to collect dust next to your tee-ball trophies, this is meant to be used! These are strung with gut wall, leathers, and bootlace. I wanted this to feel as authentic as possible. There is a handling time of at least one week for this product. We try to get them out sooner if possible.
Since this is a handmade item, it requires a few days of processing time. If timing is crucial, I am always happy to work with you.
Expedited shipping options are available.
Engravings will add additional time. Likely 48 to 72 hours.
