  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 #88: Figured Carpathian Elm, Brazilian Ebony & Sapele

    This handle is made from figured Carpathian Elm which I was fortunate to acquire from a fellow several years ago from Pennsylvania who had salvaged part of the trunk of a tree on the grounds of the University of PA. The grounds keeper was having this tree felled and the wood was destined to...
  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...

  7. 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...
  8. 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...
  9. 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...

  12. 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...
  13. 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...
  14. 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...
  15. Fancy Cane #085: Extra Fancy Texas Ebony & Sapele

    Texas Ebony is quite a unique wood and if you ever have the chance to acquire a piece you really should. The wood is quite hard and has a very fine grain and the coloration can vary from solid dark brown/black to a variety of patterns of yellow/gold veining. I happen to like the variety of...
