  1. Mother Bobcat Cane

    I had just finished the pool cue case and was putting things away, I have a million "to do" things to get to, and had no intention of starting a new project, when I got this idea and made a quick sketch. Well needless to say the "to do" list is not any shorter. I've been working on this every...
  2. 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...
  3. Repeating Curve Walking Sticks

    I try to do different projects to make sure I can justify my various tools. These are from 2×4's of cedar, redwood and fir. I simply draw out the pattern, cut it out with a jig saw, run up and down each side with a router and a 3/4" round over bit to make what, essentially, is just a very bent...
  4. Fancy Cane #029: Claro Black Walnut & Figured Cherry

    This is a more conservative combination of woods. It's one of the more simple combinations of wood that I've done, but I've shaped the handle to be as ergonomic as possible and with some nice design to it to give the user a sense of style. (I am trying to abolish those ugly aluminum and simple...
  5. Octopus cane

    Imagine an octopus climbs to the top of an old pier pilling at high tide and ambushes a fish. That's the premise here. Kind of awkward to visualize, the fish is upside down in the struggle, that might help. I used a piece of firewood, tiger maple. Saved from my friends seasoned firewood...
  6. Tounge Cane

    I figure Mick Jagger might stumble on Lumberjocks and just have to have this whimsical beauty. It was a pleasure to make and I don't think theres another one like it on the planet…Mick..You out there? Keith? Its all Spanish Cedar with gloss Krylon enamel finish.
  7. Gator Cane

    A little down time and a playful mood produced this. A Sapele head with a Walnut shaft and a Maple accent. He'd make a great cane for one of those obnoxious Florida Gator fans. hehe
  8. Woodpecker Cane

    Yeaaa…I'm into critter canes lately. This one is a Sapele and Cypress combo. I sort of invented his shape as i went. Thanks for looking!
  9. Restored Cattle Herding Cane

    This old boy is easily 40 years old. My granddad used to use this when he moved cattle, and I used it when I had ankle surgery. I took it upon myself to fill in the cracks, sand it down and finish it up! Also, originally it did not have a cap on the end, it was just a stick for hitting...
  10. Cardigan Style Cane

    Cane with Cardigan style handle of Lacewood. Maple shaft with Walnut and Maple spacers and Maple butt cap.
  11. His & Hers Canes

    Nothing too technically exciting here. I thought it would be a good experiment to build a set of canes for a couple. I don't make the same cane twice. There's always some detail that's different other than just the grain of the wood. In this case the larger cane has a Fritz style handle and...
  12. Skulls

    Here are some skulls I carved years ago to be used as tops for canes that I haven't used yet. I forget what wood I used on the first one all others are spalted maple.
  13. Diamond Willow is Fascinating - Walking Stick Projects

    This was a fascinating specimin of diamond willow, one of the best we've seen in a long time. Highly exaggerated diamonds like this are pretty rare especially in this concentration. The undercut carving brings them up another level. A golden oak stain and several coats of Waterlox tung oil...
  14. A Lady's Fancy Dress-Up Walking Cane, with Handcarved Red Long-Stem Roses

    This cane has been "SOLD" and shipped to Wichita, Kansas USA. Welcome Web Surfers: If you are surfing looking for a special walking cane on the internet, go toward the bottom of this posting where you'll find a list of canes that I have built that are ready to ship immediately.

  16. Bamboo Trekking Poles

    Trekking poles have become somewhat standard equipment for many hikers, trekkers, backpackers and snowshoers. They are used in pairs,kinda like ski poles. Trekking poles (and staffs) offer a number of practical advantages: They provide better balance and footing. On downhill hikes especially...
  17. Derby Walking Cane

    Here is a Derby Style Walking Cane I made for a good friend's brother who was turning 70. My friend wanted something special so we discussed some ways to personalize it . He went on to tell me a story that when they were kids he would raid his brother's coin collection to go and buy candy and...
  18. Custom Walking Stick - Cane #062: Redheart & Black Walnut

    This is a cane designed to give support under the forearm to eliminate stress on the wrist and hand. The client has arthritis in the thumb and fingers and carpel tunnel syndrome in the wrist area so that it is difficult to hold on to a regular cane handle and support herself. She also has a...
  19. Sea Otter

    Rivergirl,! this anything like you imagined? She got me changing direction on my next project. Took me two days thinking on it to decide whether to do it or not. In that time I found a piece of wood I thought might work, so I decided to hold my plans and go for the sea otter. A really good...
  20. Mountain Ash Walking Stick

    The found wood for this walking stick comes from a backyard mountian ash trimming. Often very usable wood is sitting close by but we don't always notice it. The handle is made from a elk antler , the first year elk grow straight antler , the antlers grow as 2 single spikes known locally as a '...
