  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. 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...
  4. 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...
  5. 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...
  6. The DK9-er (De-Caniner)

    The DK9-er (aka De-caniner) was commisioned by a fellow who had issues with a neighbor's Doberman Pinchers. A neighbor down the street owned two mature dogs and one day when walking pass their yard, they were both barking at him which was alarming enough but when he had passed their territory...
  7. 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...
  8. Fancy Wood Canes: Collection

    This is a partial collection of canes I have made. It gives you a sense of the variety of designs I have done and what I plan to do for future creations. My goal is to make a comfortable walking aide that is also attractive and fun to use. I hope the user enjoys the beauty of the woods with...
  9. 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...
  10. Custom Fancy Wood Cane #042: Claro Black Walnut, Brazilian Ebony & Sapele

    I had an order from a fellow who wanted something special for his Dad. He liked the extra fancy cane I made for my husband http://lumberjocks.com/projects/11506 . I had an odd shaped piece of really nicely feathered Claro Black Walnut and I tried to use as much of the wood to show off the...
  11. Fancy Wood Canes

    Here is an assortment of three canes made of Black Walnut, Figured Cherry, Claro Black Walnut and Macawood. The handles are designed for a comfortable fit and the shaft is a thicker and sturdier one than found on most store bought canes. These are made to last a life time or two and to give...
  12. Fancy Wood Cane #041: Claro Black Walnut & Sapele

    This is a gentlemans cane made for every day use with a classic, elegant flair. The Claro Black Walnut handle is subtle yet rich looking. I like the Sapele as it accents the dark chocolate and golden grain of the walnut. The handle is a right handed Harrison style, but designed to be...
  13. Extra Large & Tall Fancy Cane #077: Ziricote & Padauk

    This is a more whimsical design for a larger hand, or a person with a smaller hand that likes more handle room. I wanted to see how much form I could create within the limits of the piece of wood I had to work with and still keep a simple and elegant look. The Ziricote has some nice grain...
  14. 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...

  16. 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...
  17. Woodturning
    All…Just how close to absolute perfect alignment does the head and tail need to be? I can get the horizontal adjustment dead-on but the vertical I can get any closer than 1/16-3/32. Is that the proverbial close-enough for woodworking or should I continue fine tuning until it is also dead-on...

    Hey, I am new here and am looking for some advice on my first bandsaw. I am going to be using it to resaw maple in half, so I can book-match guitar tops. As well it will be used to cut the body out. So my main criteria is a 7 inch resaw limit. This has brougth me to two saws, and I am not...

    I snagged 1 4'x 6" log from work the other day and was wondering if anyone had any hints or suggestions for turning it into a project or just lumber? I've never messed with the stuff but i have been keeping an eye out at work for rarer species and want to learn to use the scrap pieces. I don't...
