Nothing too technical here. I’m just really pleased with this one so I decided to keep it. The handle is western red maple that I cut from a crotch section in a piece of maple that I picked up. It was left by a tree crew trimming the right of way. I think it was too ugly to interest firewood cutters. The log had really nice grain and spalting inside. I’ve gotten several good handles from it so far and still have a couple pieces of it. This handle was cut from a crotch in it.
The spacers are honey locust, raintree wood, and olive.
The shank is natural alder.

Sorry about the red in the pictures. There was a lot of smoke in the sky from the fires in our region when these pictures were taken.

Another great cane. You are putting that “too ugly for firewood” to good use. The spirit of the wood must have been speaking loud and clear when it told those tree trimmers to leave this piece for you. Thanks for sharing.
