I only have the one picture. I needed a way to store my canes when I’m not using them and came up with this.
Arts and Crafts inspired using salvaged oak from two table tops and an old cabinet door that were too far gone to save. The legs are from a downed tree from last winter. They’re still green, but we’ll see how they do. I’m hoping they don’t move around too much.
I’m used to hiding the defects in wood when possible. My wife likes rustic furniture so this time I decided to have the nail and worm holes show.

OK Rodney, take one more picture from farther away with your cane collection in it. Looks good so far.

We’re in the middle of remodeling our living room. Right now it’s a plywood floor and boxes and furniture stacked up out of the way. Not the best for pictures.
Maybe after it’s painted and the floor is in.

Ditto papadan’s comment. I would like to see it with canes in it.
What kind of finish did you use (if any)?

I like “NOT PERFECT” because that is all I can do ANYWAY!

I also like “rescued” wood as that is all that I can afford too.

I sanded it to 220 grit and put on 2 coats of tung oil. I figured that was enough for what it is. I don’t think a fine finish would go with the screw holes and rust stains.

This cane stand looks great and has a lot of fine character.
