I had wanted to send a couple of pictures of this walking stick before I shaped it but forgot, but here is the finished piece before it was delivered to be shipped. The curved scarf joints really add something I think. Although it is more work it really helps to highlight the character of the grain….. The wood was Koa for the handle and base with the bow( which I didn’t take a picture of) made from Ohia and blond Koa, it’s verging on being too busy, but I got in a rush and ran out of time.

More beautiful wood beautifully made and finished. Can’t see any evidence of rushed woodworking here, Harold.

How did I miss this one? That is a beauty. Is this one about cane height? or walking stick height?

I’m like Dennis, & missed this, but one thing nice about LJs is it’s alway there if you take some time to look.

You have a keen eye for creating this type of art.

I like the little foot on the tip, it’s really clever.

Beautiful looking cane, I don’t know how I missed this post before but I’m glade to see it now.
Well done. Is that a rubber pad on the footing?

I like the wood combinations and the shape of this. Kind of reminds me of some of the BobLee Bows. What would something like this cost a person?
