A neighbor just asked me if I might be able to turn a "percussion stick" to match an existing one (it was a pair, but the other was lost). It sounds easy at first, but then I assume that these need to be made from a specific wood probably at a specific dryness and I have no clue what those might be. I was given the attached blurry photo and besides the phrase "percussion stick" that's all I know.

Has anyone made something like this and know what kind of materials to use?

It's true most drum sticks are made of hickory with the lighter ones usually made of maple. If these are claves, those are usually made of dense tonal woods, like rosewood or ebony. However, other dense woods will work just fine, such as walnut or maple.
