Canes and walking sticks are my projects of choice. The first is a oak cane I got at a flea market and carved the angle.The second is a walnut cane I am putting dogwood flowers on. The third has a Mahogany handle and walnut shank. The forth has a zebrawood handle with a padauk shank. The fifth one is a mahogany handle with a canarywood shank.

They all look great, but the carvings really make them special for me.

I’ve always wanted to try making a cane. I only have a very small jet lathe and It doesn’t give me enough room to turn the shaft. Your comment about grabbing one at a flea market is something I never thought of.

All look great but the one with the dogwood flowers really caught my eye.

For a cane, especially the “handle” part, what is your finish of choice? Given all the contact, I’m guessing something durable, but not slick.

I be made a cane or two but nothing as nice as yours! Your carving is impressive and adds the artist touch.

Those are beautiful! How do you join the handle to shaft? I was thinking of making one for my dad but I was afraid it wouldn’t be strong enough and would more dangerous than no cane at all.
