Showcase cover image for Custom Large Mens Cane #36:  Lychee & Marblewood

Project Information

This cane was made for a fellow who is a wood scientist. A wood scientist is a very serious person when it comes to identifying wood. You do not want to loosely name a species of wood around a wood scientist. He needed a cane that was extremely sturdy and has a large handle. I used Lychee which has a very wavy and tight grain for the handle and he supplied a piece of Marblewood for the shaft. The shaft goes completely through the handle to give it superior strength, rather than an inner dowel. Both woods are quite dense and this is a very hefty cane.

The handle is made in the style of the Harrison handle that I designed, so he can get a better grip with the under curl to catch his fingers to grip with. Unlike the true Harrison design, this is an ambidextrous version, so it is comfortable for either hand. The handle measures 8 inches long, the total height of the cane is about 35 inches tall.

That is a beautiful cane! I love the combination of Litchi chinensis and Marmaroxylon racemosum.

Very nice and sturdy cane. The long handle is well designed and will give a good grip. The design on the shaft is very attractive. The finish is perfect. What have you used for that?

Very nice woodwork, looks strong enough to play croquet with. Thanks for your post on my entertainment center. I hope you had a chance to look at the other koa work, it all came from the same flitch of veneer, and there are better pictures of the veneer. I still have 4 pieces left 11 inches wide by 10 feet long, incredibly patterned.

That's a very nice piece of work. Looks like it might double as a serious cudgel as well.
