I prefer to use split wooden streachers for all my fur that is case skined. I do use the other two types as well but don't like them as much.

I honestly have never known anyone to use wooden stretchers. I guess, I always thought they were a thing of the past since wire came on the scene.

Why is it you guys prefer wooden ones, and do you make them your selves or do you buy them?

I make my own and I prefer the wooden strechers because you can shape the butt end of the pelt better also they don't rust and leave stains on the pelts.
