  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. 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...
  4. Fishing eagle

    Latest project. Still having cane inspirations. :] Wild ideas come to life. Walnut body, white oak for the head and tail, maple for the cane, with ebony spacers. Boiled linseed oil for the finish. Hope you enjoy….............

  7. Panther Cane

    This cane is inspired from an old favorite book of mine. One of the first books I ever owned. It's a compilation of short stories about panthers. Written about 1900, by Le Roy Armstrong, Tad and his Panther. The story had a great illustration of this panther trying to get at a youngster on a...
  8. Walking Stick - Handgrip Experiment

    This one is more of an experiment that is applicable to walking sticks or staffs. I was looking at my Ashiko drum (http://lumberjocks.com/projects/108856), and I started to wonder if I could use the same roping method to create a handgrip on a walking stick or staff. After a bit of drilling and...
  9. Fancy Wood Cane #023: Claro Black Walnut & Maca Wood

    This is one of my favorites, as the handle is an extremely dense piece of Claro Black Walnut and the shaft is Maca which is not commonly found, although it's being farmed and is quite beautiful. This is an earlier photo of this cane when I had first applied pure tung oil and tried a wax finish...
  10. Dolphin Cane

    Continuing on the whale theme, here is the dolphin. The main difference in this cane is, I used a steel, all thread, dowel, to connect the dolphin to the wave. I was a little worried about strength right there. Feels really good. I used wood dowels on the shaft. The dolphin is, maple. The...
  11. Canes for Wounded Warriors

    These are just a sample of the canes that my husband and I have created to give the cane user a custom ergonomic cane that provides comfort, stability and style, a just because you need a walking aide, doesn't mean that you can't have a sense of style with an artistically designed piece of...
  12. Diamond Willow + Antler Tee Handle Cane #2

    I don't think this is really a true tee handle cane. I left enough antler at the rear of the handle so the whole hand can grasp the handle without needing to hook the index finger in front of the shaft. But I was hoping to keep the option open to still use this cane as a tee handle by leaving a...
  13. Diamond Willow + Antler Tee Handle Cane #3

    This tee handle cane uses diamond willow for the shaft and elk antler for the handle. Materials Wood - Diamond willow Handle - Elk tine Bottom - Brass tipped [rubber cap] Finish - Wipe-on Poly Thank you for your interest. Sold
  14. Pool cue case

    My brother shoots pool. He has few other interests. So you'd be right to suppose he's pretty good. He wont admit to it but after sitting for hours on end watching and waiting for my turn I finally quit playing with him. He is hard to get something special for. He doesn't need much to be...
  15. Mack the bulldog

    This is the top of a cane that I made for my Dad. You guessed it a retired Truck Driver. I have only been working with wood for about a year, so I hope that I'm not embarrassing myself. The stick and base are white pine and I carved the dog out of basswood. Although you cant really see it I...
  16. 1920 Reo car for Christmas giveaway.

    I've been making some cars for our Toy Giveaway on the first Sat in December. Our woodworking club "The Mason Dixon Woodworkers" have a charity outreach where we give toys to around 25 different charities that they then distribute the toys to the children of disadvantaged families that they...
  17. Walnut and Leather Forearm Crutches

    These were a custom request from a lady who has MS and walks with a forearm crutch. Right now she only needs one but we decided a pair would be better so they would match if she needs both in the future. Both crutches were cut from the same board. I picked the straightest grained one I could...
  18. Bald Eagle cane

    My Son, finally got the computer all hooked so I can down load my photo's. Yippee! I've been thinking on this design for a while and finally got around to giving it a try. Walnut for the wings, figured maple for the head and tail. More maple for the feet, stand and large insert, the small...
  19. Cane handles

    At our Christmas craft show a gentleman took my card who was interested in getting a set of custom handles made for one of my dunnage canes. He brought a slab of curly maple to the shop and we discussed the types of handles, one long grip and one ball end. He wanted a military challenge coin...
  20. Black footed falcon cane

    Been having fun with the bird shape and raptors being one of my favorite creatures, well it's all working out just right. By the way, I make the beaks broad and heafty, so that they wont break. I want the canes to be used and I know I drop mine on occasion, so dent is okay, not break. The...
