  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. 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...
  4. 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...
  5. Fancy Cane #066: Ziricote, Bloodwood, Brazilian Ebony & Macawood

    This is a more formal style of cane with a slender handle and shaft that is still larger than most store bought canes but it is suitable for the small, medium and large hand. The handle is made from Ziricote and tapered to fit the palm comfortably. The collars are of Bloodwood and Brazilian...
  6. Big Sturdy Cane #109: Arizona Ironwood, Cocobolo, Brazilian Ebony & Sapele

    This cane has a big handle made for someone who wants a sturdy cane to lean a lot of weight on. It fits a medium to large size hand and the handle is designed to use in the reverse direction of traditional canes. The extended curved end faces outward and your palm rests on the flat, wide area...
  7. Fancy Tall Cane #100: T Style - Figured Koa, Texas Ebony, Macawood & Pearls

    This is a large "T" style cane made with a very nicely figured piece of Koa with a tight pattern that shows up well considering the small dimensions of a cane handle. The chatoyance helps illuminate the figuring to look like stripes of a tiger and each angle that it is viewed from changes the...
  8. 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...
  9. Fancy Wood Canes

    Well here are a few of the canes I have made. I am designing and creating as I go, letting the wood "talk" to me. I am taking a more sculptural approach to the handles but foremost they MUST be comfortable and practical to hold and use. I believe function should be in tuned with beauty to...
  10. Manzanita Snake Head Cane

    Here is one of my favorite canes. This is made of a piece of Manzanita root and it was a gnarly piece full of dirt and rocks. The more I cleaned it, the more voids appeared and if it weren't such an interesting piece of wood, I would have tossed it. The white snake like head is the natural...
  11. Custom Fancy Cane #076: Cocobolo, Brazilian Ebony, Purpleheart, Macawood, Rosewood & Padauk

    This is a cane with an extra large handle and a sectional shaft. I usually like to make the shaft of one solid piece of wood, but had a request to make one with a variety of colored woods. To keep the strength of the cane, each section was made with a dowel for joinery, so there is an...
  12. 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...
  13. 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...
  14. Custom Fancy Cane #079: Black & White Ebony

    A client asked me to repair a silver handled cane that he had purchased and had broken and wanted to use the existing ebony shaft for the new cane. The handle was a hollow silver chased form that was filled with a putty of sorts then attached to the shaft by filling the neck of the silver...
  15. Curly Koa & Ebony Cane

    This cane handle is made from a nice piece of Curly Koa and I wanted to mimic the traditional hound's head cane that were once very popular. I've seen some elegant ones carved from ivory and some real doggy dog head ones carved from whoknowswhat, so my challenge was to create a cane that looked...
  16. 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...
  17. 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...
  18. Fancy Cane #069: Black & White Ebony, Gaboon Ebony & Tiger Maple

    This is a Derby style cane handle made from Black & White Ebony. The B/W Ebony had a natural crack in it that I filled with fine ebony dust & epoxy, then layered in some silver foil and freshwater pearls to give the natural void an interesting hidden treasure. The natural black veining of the...
  19. 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...
  20. 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...
