This cane has a half crook style handle. Shaft and handle are Walnut with a bone end cap, Bone and Walnut spacer and ferrule. Inlay of Celtic Triquetra in Malachite on front of handle. 35 inches long.

All my canes and walking sticks are made by hand, with draw knife, spokeshave and rasp and therefore will contain some unique irregularities. Critiques and suggestions welcome.

Thanks for looking.

Very nice looking. I would be curious as what the process is for getting the stones inlayed, mostly how you get them smooth with the surface of the wood.

Such a lovely cane

Thanks for the compliment Ron.

Dug, the Triquetra was sketched onto the wood, then channeled out with a carbide bit to 1/8 inch depth. Then the Malachite chips were set in using CA glue and let dry. Using a fine flat file, the raised part of the inlay was worked until flush with the wood. Then it was sanded with the rest of the cane and waxed. Hope that helps.
