Hello,

Wood for Drumsticks:

Dogwood, very durable. You generally have to make a drumstick out of a dogwood branch. This tends to be weaker because you have the sapwood, heartwood, and pulp.

Osage Oarnge, Much more tenacious than dogwood. Its in the locust family, no realation to the above. You can find lots of it if you live in the plains states. It was planted as winbreaks during the dust bowl.

Hickory: This is another all around tuogh wood. you would want to split you stick out of a log and carve it to get the most durable variety. Hickory is a all around tough, flexible wood.

Hope this helps

Fiberglass is easier
