Having some interest in Canes I had never tried to build one until my wife’s Hip surgery, I built this one from Cherry with a Walnut handle. The bottom of the handle was designed to sweep down the cane about 2” but I had a crack develop in this section so I removed it and added the Brass band, Finish Tung oil and Poly. Nothing exceptional but served her well, thanks for looking and I am open to suggestions on improvement.

It’s an elegant and dignified cane yet simple in nature.

Beautiful. That handle looks really comfortable. Well done.

I’ve built quite a few in my days and have quite the collection, including one belonging to the former prime minister of England, the Right Honourable W E Gladstone, made by himself.

No suggestions on my part, this looks perfectly fine to me. Cherry and walnut, IMO two of the most beautiful woods, you can’t go wrong with these.
