    This is a custom cane that I designed for a client who needs to put most of his weight on the pad of his thumb and palm area of his index and middle fingers. With limited finger use, I also had to make sure there was enough room for his fingers to rest and have enough surface for his palm to...
  2. Fancy Cane #066: Ziricote, Bloodwood, Brazilian Ebony & Macawood

  3. Fancy Ladies Cane #057: Manzanita Burl, Black Walnut & Purpleheart

    This is a fancy custom ladies cane made for a smaller hand. The handle is made from extra fancy Manzanita Burl with a Black Walnut collar and a Purpleheart shaft. The Black walnut collar caught the light in such a way that it illuminated it. This was unintentional but the right angle of the...
  4. Fancy Cane #085: Extra Fancy Texas Ebony & Sapele

    Texas Ebony is quite a unique wood and if you ever have the chance to acquire a piece you really should. The wood is quite hard and has a very fine grain and the coloration can vary from solid dark brown/black to a variety of patterns of yellow/gold veining. I happen to like the variety of...

    This is an extra tall, extra LARGE cane made for a client who is 6'4" tall. He originally purchased a cane of a similar shape but it was cut much too short for his stately stature, so I needed to convince him that I could make him a cane suitable for his needs. His original response to my...

  8. Fancy Cane #047: Manzanita Burl , Brazilian Ebony & Black Walnut

    This is a freeform cane handle made of Manzanita Burl. I tried to keep as much of the natural shape of the burl to enhance the form of the handle, yet shaped it to be comfortable and functional. The nature of the Manzanita Burl is unpredictable and full of voids and cracks so I have tried to...
  9. Fancy Wood Canes

    Well here are a few of the canes I have made. I am designing and creating as I go, letting the wood "talk" to me. I am taking a more sculptural approach to the handles but foremost they MUST be comfortable and practical to hold and use. I believe function should be in tuned with beauty to...

    This is an ergonomic shaped handle made from Manzanita Burl. It's quite an organic shape and has a lot of the fancy spray design I like in this wood. There were also a lot of cracks and voids that I had to fill, but that just adds character to the piece. Originally it was looking more...

Today, someone named "Vivian" posted the below to my profile. Clearly I have no intention of contacting...
  14. Off Topic Coffee Lounge
