  1. Fancy Wood Cane #027: Quilted Maple & Claro Black Walnut

    This is one of my favorites. I found some really nice quilted maple and decided it needed to be a 3 Dimensional piece to show off the illumination. This was one time the wood really spoke out to me and insisted that it had more potential than as a flat surfaced object. One can spend hours...
  2. Fancy Wood Cane #024: Figured Pink Ivory & Purpleheart

    I haven't seen much figured Pink Ivory and didn't realize this was figured as the saw blade markings disguised it. The markings are subtle but distinct as this one turned out to be pretty nice. The wood is extremely hard and dense and polishes up really nice. I only wish I had a piece of...
  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. Custom Tall Large Fancy Wood Cane #043: Texas Ebony & Bloodwood

    This cane was done by my husband with minor assist from myself. The handle is done in the Harrison style, designed to allow an ample grip and support to elevate from a sitting position and sturdiness while walking. It is made for right hand use but is comfortable for ambidextrous use. The...
  5. 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...
  6. Fancy Cane #048: Macadamia Spray, Brazilian Ebony & Maca Wood

    This is a slender designed cane with a more elegant style. This is the sister piece of macadamia that I used for Cane #040. I found some extraordinary macadamia that has a spray of orange imbedded in the darker red wood. It is such a hard and dense wood that I can use a cross grain section...
  7. Extra Large Fancy Cane #049: Almond, Yellow Heart, Texas Ebony & Cherry

    This is an extremely large cane handle of figured Almond. This is from the same piece of wood I made the Knotted Almond Cane #045A http://lumberjocks.com/projects/13565 from and the grain in this is quite interesting, as the colors and grain keep changing. The length of this handle is 7 3/4"...
  8. Custom Fancy Ladies Cane #051: Manzanita Burl, Tiger/Flame Maple & Purpleheart

    This is an elegant ladies cane made for a small hand. The handle is made of Manzanita Burl which I'm quite fond of, especially with the sunray of colors. Manzanita is known to have voids and cracks that some wood workers may choose to stay away from, but I rather like the imperfections as...
  9. Fancy Wood Cane #045A: Figured Knotted Almond

    This is my entry for "A Knot Like No Other". It is made from a piece of figured almond that had a large elongated knot smack in the center of the board and it angled down in the piece of wood so that if I wanted to make the handle and shaft of one solid piece, the handle was not going to lay at...
  10. Custom Large Mens Cane #36: Lychee & Marblewood

    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...
  11. Fancy Wood Cane #004: Claro Black Walnut & Sapele

    My goal is to create ergonomic cane handles that fit the hand with comfort, support and style. You now have an option to not use an ugly aluminum cane or skinny, wobbly cane to support yourself. I design and create the canes for functional and aesthetic needs. The user's height, weight and...
  12. Fancy Wood Cane #040: Macadamia, Ebony & Maca

    I found some macadamia wood with an interesting pattern of orange "dashes & rays" in it. Although the wood is cut on the cross grain to expose the pattern, the macadamia is quite hard and dense that I feel the short grain is still extremely strong. I had to work hard to sand down the surface...
  13. Off Topic Coffee Lounge
    I just bought a fuji Q3 pro hvlp system and asked a question in the safety fourm and the response was pretty negative in general. Now I am wondering if I did the right thing. I plan on using it in my basement. I have a seperate room from my work shop with a door and two high outside windows. I...
  14. Woodworking Skill Share
    I am relatively new at wood working and have a couple little projects under my belt. So I recently built a box and put slots on the sides to hold the bottom in. I ended up building a jig and making multiple passes with a skil saw at slightly different distances from the edge to cut the slot...
