I kind of rushed these together a while back, due to them being popular. Not as happy with these as others I’ve made.
Didn’t get too detailed with these., just wanted something to do. I know it shows.
Hope you enjoy anyway. . .Thanks for looking . . .
Figured maple, walnut , Elm . . .

beautiful canes, these are always popular, I wonder why, nice work, I’ve been told that making canes is an addictive occupation, you’ve been warned too.

Thanks pottz !

My attitude is, you don’t need to need a cane, you just want one . . .

I look at them as functional art. I really still have alot of my carved canes and I sometimes just enjoy the look of them,. I.m really my biggest fan…Now they keep inspiring me to try something new. . .Never knew I could do any of them, now starting to feel a little more confident.

Trying to keep it real . .

Thanks swirt, appreciate that . . .

It’s just that I know these are popular, because I gave most of the others away so fast. I wanted a couple more handy, in case a good story came up, a worthwhile . . .I try to not make too many things the same but I really love my falcon canes and the eagle canes…They are very comfortable to hold and use or just look at…Pretty fun to make too…

Cool man…

Pottz,

I’ll tell you this; You take some of your beautiful cutoffs, figure out a comfortable shape, with nice spacer pieces for the shaft, sand it all down, then you’ll see it calls for a stand. So you build a cool stand and then you’ll just set it out and just enjoy it being there. Showing off that beautiful wood. It being a cane, then it’s okay to hold it and feel that great wood…I’m sure you’d make a cool stick..

You have a keen sense of design and texture. Simplicity is more beautiful than an overworked piece. Your work shows your love of woodworking.

Hey Pottz, I hope you are still looking on. I don’t know if you are aware of, mmh, Meillie, she was an inspiration for me when I first signed on to LJ. Just beautiful cane projects. Really showcases the wood, with practical application and design . . .

Thank you, over and over, Meillie, you do inspire still. . .

Very nicely done, I cannot see where it was rushed. The lines look very good, and a nice transition to the shaft.

In my neck of the woods the walking sticks are popular, with most being smooth, I have seen some with a spirit carving on the staff.
