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 just moving the handle in the sunlight and watching the hologram like images.
The handle is extra large and is the Harrison style handle that I created for a fellow who uses his cane to help get up from sitting. He needed a better grip to hold the cane in front of him while sitting and then lifts himself forward. This handle is made for a right handed grip but is comfortable enough for either hand. The photos don’t really capture the 3-D shapes and curves and it is fun to hold, not to mention extremely comfortable.
The shaft has a touch of Claro graining in it, just enough to accent and not overstate the piece.
Your comments are welcome.
