went walking in my woods and seen this black walnut tree with roots on top of soil, looked really cool, grab a chain saw and cut it off.. then decided to clean bark type skin off, wash it, lightly sand being careful not to remove the pretty texture colors and applied some poly, now i have a really pretty spiral walking cane.
