This cane is the end result of a documentation on how to make a fancy walking cane for an Instructables submission. It took a lot longer than I had expected as the process of creating a piece and taking photos and re-taking photos, as one misses or skips steps is mind boggling. The Instructables submission actually came out quite well and if you’re interested on how I make my canes, then you’ll want to take a look http://www.instructables.com/id/How_To_Make_A_Custom_Fancy_Walking_Cane/ . I may even have to copy this to keep in the workshop just in case I miss a step.

Hi Matt,

Your question: “What do you use on the bottom?”, are you referring to a rubber cane tip?

Hey Meillie
I just visited your how too on instructables.com and found your tutorial so informative and well done. I like all your canes and think you are a truly a master cane maker. I was surprised that a lathe was not involved in the process.

Hi a1Jim,

I don’t use a lathe because I prefer a more hand hewn shape of the shaft, not the symmetrical, machine shape that a lathe produces. I want to shape the shaft gradually from round to square along the length so that one can tell it’s hand done. I do however, use power tools to assist in shaping and sanding along with the hand tools, as they save a lot of time and wear on the arms and hands.
