This is a commisioned piece I just completed for a guy down in Texas. It is from basswood with an antler handle. I used a piece of lacewood on the butt of the handle. The low relief carvings based on floral and oak leaf leatherwork patterns, covering about 24 inches of a 38” cane. I finished it in polyurethane and used some light brown Briwax to make the designs stand out and to darken it slightly. I hope he likes it as much as I do!

Excellent work. Adding the briwax makes it look more like leather. The guy ought to love it.
