  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 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...
  3. Extra Large Mens Fancy Cane #058: Manzanita Burl, Ebony & Osage Orange

    This is an extra large handle measuring 8.5" long and approximately 1.25" thick at the thinnest diameter. The handle is made from extremely fine quality of Manzanita Burl that is very dense and has a beautiful swirl of grain. This burl is much superior to the previous Manzanita I have used as...
  4. Custom Fancy Cane #045: Black Walnut Crotch w/ Manzanita & Brazilian Cherry - Larsen Handle

    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...
  5. 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...
  6. Custom Fancy Cane #068: Cocobolo, Bloodwood & Brazilian Ebony

    This handle is done in a more traditional Derby style but I've added some heft to give a more comfortable grip. The handle is made from solid Cocobolo, the collars are Bloodwood and Brazilian ebony and the shaft of solid Bloodwood. It's a nice sturdy cane for a tall gentleman. I had a problem...
  7. 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...
  8. 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...
  9. Custom Fancy Cane #073: Figured Lychee & Padouk

    This cane was made with an extra large handle and an extra thick shaft to match. It is a Harrison style handle that I designed to allow for a comfortable, sturdy grip and a finger catch. This is a left handed version but is still quite comfortable when used with the right hand. The handle is...
  10. Custom Cane #138: Cocobolo & Honduran Rosewood Faux Twisty Stick

    This is a custom cane made for a client who likes a little twist in her life! She wanted a cane that provided comfort, stability and a lot of unique character that would show off the grain of the wood. The multi-colored grain of Cocobolo appealed to her and the more subtle and finer grain of...
  11. Fancy Cane #064: Claro Black Walnut & Figured Cherry

    This is a cane that was made for a young lady in her mid 70's for her birthday, commissioned by her children. It is a smaller handle made to provide a comfortable and easy grip with figure catches to keep one's hand from slipping. The handle is made of Claro Black Walnut and the shaft is...
  12. Custom Fancy Cane #110: Honduran Rosewood Burl, Brazilian Ebony & Honduran Rosewood

    This is a tall cane made with some extra fancy Honduran Rosewood burl that has some beautiful swirls of chocolate grain that dance through the handle. The handle is approximately 5.5" long and is reinforced with a metal rod because the thin part is partially short grained. The collar is of...
  13. Custom Fancy Cane #053: (Extra Large) Manzanita Burl & Black Walnut

    The client wanted a fancy wood version of a cane she currently uses that has a very fat handle that projects a good 7 inches. I tried to match the length and girth of the old cane handle and then proceeded to add more to the size for strength and style. She wanted to place the entire width of...
  14. Fancy Cane #046: Madrone Burl, Pink Ivory & Figured Cherry

    This is a large cane handle using Madrone Burl in a more organic shape for a large hand. It is slightly asymetrical and the unique shape gives it a lot of character and still provides comfort. The pattern of the burl is unique and subtle, just as the colors of creamy beige with some pink. I...
  15. Custom Tall Cane #143: Fancy Briar Burl, Makassar & Gabon Ebony

    This is an elegant but very sturdy cane for a client who wanted a cane that he could enjoy for many years. He is a collector of pipes and expressed interest in Briar Burl and Makassar Ebony as two of his favorite woods. I was fortunate to find the briar burl and had a top quality piece of...
  16. 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...
  17. Fancy Custom Cane #161: Extra Fancy Quilted Maple, Paela Burl, Gabon Ebony & Tiger Maple

    This is one of my fancier canes that a client commissioned for his collection. He appreciates the quilted maple that I myself have a fondness for, as the chatoyance in this grain gives a hologram effect of ever changing patterns. The pattern changes with every movement and light change that...
  18. Custom Fancy Cane #078: Amboyna Burl, Brazilian Ebony & Padauk

    This is a fancy cane made for a young lady who is in need of some support for lengthy walks. Since she is of medium build I did not want to over burden her with a heavy cane, but should she need to put more of her weight on it for future needs, I wanted to make sure she had something sturdy for...
  19. Fancy Ladies Cane #065: Figured Amboyna, Brazilian Ebony & Birdseye Maple

    This is a custom cane made for a young lady in her 80's. Her son commissioned this for her and they both admire fine woods so I tried to find a highly figured piece of Amboyna and accented it with the Brazilian Ebony and a nice piece of Birdseye Maple that has some dark coloration due to...
  20. 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...
