I agree with you that I am not ready for a cane- yet. But as far as the woodworking is concerned this is a nice piece. The ivory and stain compliment each other well.

Ebay might be a good idea. You never can tell what you are going to get with some auctions. I posted a comment earlier today about a Lie-Nielsen dovetail saw that I was watching recently. The saw auctioned out at more than what you could get a new one for directly from Lie-Nielsen.

Thanks for the post.

Ask Mark DeCou about canes, since he has made several walking sticks. He might have some good ideas about selling them.
