  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 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...
  3. 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...
  4. 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...
  5. 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...
  6. Manzanita Snake Head Cane, Back view

    The Manaznita wood can have a beautiful grain and this one has a red/burgundy spray feathered on the backside of this piece. The photo doesn't really do this justice, but the wood is incredible. I love creating art and functional art is my goal. For more information please visit...
  7. Fancy Cane #052: Osage Orange, Bloodwood, Brazilian Ebony & Jatoba (Brazilian Cherry)

    This is a "medium" sized cane handle made of Osage Orange. The collar is made of Bloodwood and Brazilian Ebony, the shaft is Jatoba (Brazilian Cherry). "Medium" sized is misleading as my cane handles are much heftier than most store bought versions. The photo shows cane #51 which was made for...
  8. 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...
  9. 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...
  10. 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...
  11. Gnarly Fancy Cane #113: Dinosaur Skull Fossil - Az. Ironwood, Manzanita, Shedua & Bubinga/Macawood

    This is made from an extremely gnarly piece of Arizona ironwood that had some live edge to it. The original rough piece of wood was a scrap that probably would have been tossed in a fire but I was intrigued by the extreme contour of the grain and I could see a formation of an animal head of...
  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. 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...
  14. Fancy Cane #033: Banksia Pod with Black Walnut

    I used a Banksia pod for the handle and found it to be quite durable once I got past the unstable outer material. I was alarmed that the many holes would make it unstable but found the core of the pod to be quite dense and strong. I filled them with epoxy and wax to create a jewel like...
  15. 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...
  16. Off Topic Coffee Lounge
    I see this burner advertised often on the right side of the Pulse page quite often. They have a lot of glowing reviews and endorsements but, I have always given higher credibility to the opinions of other LJ's over what is found on some web sites. We have had burn bans due to a severe drought...
  17. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    A fellow instructor(that teaches woodburning) told me about the 'Creative Versa-tool' from Walnut Hollow. It has a regulator in the cord, comes in a carrying case, and also with about 10 tips. It is priced at $29. I used an A.C. Moore 50% off coupon and got it at Michael's for $15. If I'd used...
  18. 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...
  19. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    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...
  20. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    Hi everyone. This is my first post here and I'm in kind of a time sensitive jam. I still consider myself a beginner with a lot to learn. I've had sporadic experience over the years but I'm really diving further into furniture making & hopefully selling and I'm shopping for my first table saw...
