I should be completeing this cane in the next day or two, but it is pretty much completed for all practical purposes. I did manage to cobble together a short video showing some additional texturing techniques that I used to finish off the woodburning. I put a couple of coats of boiled linseed oil and mineral spirits on it to “yellow” it a little bit. And I have got the handle epoxied to the shaft using the pipe clamp jig in the video. I’ll brush it offf good and put on a couple of coats of Minwax satin polyurethane. I let it soak in a bit and then wipe it off with a paper towel. I ‘ll make sure the handle is nice and shiny and I’ll finish it off with a rubber furniture tip on the bottom. I appreciate everyone’s patience and any tips anyone might share on video cameras and editing software would be appreciated. I sure would like to edit these videos before posting but haven’t found anything to edit .MOV files on a Windows PC! Thanks for following along and comments and advice are welcomed!
