Do you like Osage Orange. I have turned some small stuff but never worked this wood in this way. I really enjoyed it and was lucky to get and good piece from my friend Hal. Its been air dried in his shop for 30 years.
I was asked to add a hard metal on the ends for striking coyotes,aggressive dogs or anyone who deserves it.

Two of the finest canes I’ve seen on LJ’s (or anywhere really).
What is your tip constructed of?
What is the metal piece on the handle?
And what is the finish?

Any other tips on construction would be appreciated.

My favorite part of the post though, is that consideration was given for heft, and proper weight distribution you want, if you got to go upside somebody head with it!

Beautiful work. I assume you do not need a ‘permit to carry’ ...

Beautiful canes! I would love to try making one but not much Osage Orange growing in the suburbs. Guess I will have to take a hike and pick up some of those fruits to grow my own. :)

I would also like to know where you got the tips.

Thanks for posting.
