Well after having another surgery I am tired of using a cane from the hospital, you know the aluminum type that makes a lot of noise as you use it while waking. Anyway today an older gentleman and I discussed the hospital cane and I mentioned how I was thinking of making one out of some spare wood. He chuckled and said by the time I was done making one I shouldn’t need it anymore. So, after getting home I had a challenge to whip something out.

When I was making this I thought I would put the handle towards the center to support more weight if needed and I kept the shaft of it thick so if it is ever needed in defense it would be strong enough to hopefully stand up to the task.

Earlier today this was just a spare piece of wood sitting in my barn. To help the two different colors stand out I used one coat of Tung oil and a coat of Lacquer. Thanks for looking!
