  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 Walking Stick: For Pre-Revolutionary War Reenactment

    This is a walking stick that I made for a friend who participates in Pre-Revolutionary War Reenactment activities. She is pictured here in full costume authentic to the era, as is her husband and friend. Her husband poses as an officer and as the wife of an officer, she would have the monies...
  4. 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...
  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. 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...
  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 #129: Honduran Rosewood Burl, Brazilian Ebony & Honduran Rosewood

    This is a sister cane to Custom Fancy Cane #110. The extraordinary grain of the Honduran Rosewood Burl is so beautiful by itself, that the shape of the cane needs to be as simple, yet comfortable and functional as possible. It doesn't need any addtional carvings or embelishments, as I feel...
  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. Fancy Derby Cane #097: Figured Koa, Gaboon Ebony, Cocobolo & Brazilian Ebony w/ Pearl

    This is an extra large Derby style handle made from highly figured Koa that has some excellent chatoyance in the wood showing how the tree grew under some very stressful conditions. I love how the color of the wood ranges from light yellow/gold and turns darker and more predominant towards the...
  13. Fancy Cane #099: Figured Koa, Cocobolo, Brazilian Ebony & Jatoba w/ Pearl

    This is a "T" style cane using a very nice piece of figured Koa that has a nice consistently tight pattern. The tight grain also makes this a very hard piece of wood, as some straight grain Koa can be much softer. The hardness of the wood allowed me to make a thinner design that still has...
  14. Fancy Cane #044: Afzelia, Brazilian Ebony & Padouk

    This cane is the end result of a documentation on how to make a fancy walking cane for an Instructables submission. It took a lot longer than I had expected as the process of creating a piece and taking photos and re-taking photos, as one misses or skips steps is mind boggling. The...
  15. 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...
  16. Custom Fancy Cane #082: Claro Black Walnut, Brazilian Ebony & Figured Cherry

    This is a simple, yet elegant design made for a young lady who wanted to treat herself to something nice and yet practical. She liked the dark rich colors of the Claro Black Walnut and decided to go all the way with the figured Cherry. I added a collar of Brazilian Ebony which looks similar to...
  17. 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...
  18. 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...
  19. 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...
  20. 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...
