Recently I was commissioned to make an oriental style cane. I posted a question here asking what it should have on it, and have decided on the dragon. The price of this cane is low, so I had to figure out what I could do to stay in budget. Needless to say, I’m not on budget, but it’s a nice cane. I couldn’t spend the time I wanted to designing this piece. The price wasn’t accomodating enough I guess. I did the dragon inlay work and unfortunately that’s probably about the only asian thing on it. LOL. But it’s still nice.
This cane is commissioned by another woodworker. He specifically said he was buying it to support another artist, and that he wanted a bad ass cane. Those are his actual words. Frankly, I don’t even think he needs a cane, he just saw my other work and had to have one. I think this is probably the greatest compliment I have ever received. Another woodworker purchasing my work as a piece of art. It’s beyond words to me, and I can’t thank him enough. Hopefully this meets his expectations.
Anyhow, here she is in raw form. I’ll have to ask Gary what the handle was again, but the rest is Walnut with a maple dragon. I am going to ebonize the walnut. I will post pictures of this when it is done. Thanks for looking, and as always I welcome constructive criticism, positive or negative.
