This cane is carved in walnut. I didn’t have a long enough pole so I had to make a maple neck. I still need to figure out what to do with the tip. I searched the cane projects here and it looks like a brass tip is the way to go. I’m not sure where to get the brass, and I’m guessing it is something that should have been installed and turned with the cane. LOL. So I will most likely come up with something different.
This cane is for sale. If you have interest in this cane please PM me.

As always I welcome constructive criticism, positive or negative. Thanks for looking.

It looks like you found some walnut.

The finished product looks great.

That’s really nice!!!! Only one thing I think about. My canes are always falling. Hard to keep them safe always. I quit thinking of designs with fragile areas. . Mine I hope just dent or scratch. Great carving. Cool shape!

mtnwild, good tip on the falling aspect. I was thinking that I would need to make a cane holder like Mark does for all of his canes. Just more woodworkin, which is always good :^)

Beautifully executed ! Those of us that have had to use canes at one time or another only want to have rubber tips. Someone who wish’s to display it or carry it as a ‘dress’ cane (does anyone really do that anymore?) probably would prefer brass. Many canes today come with both. My cane which I no longer have to use very often was made by a craftsman in Ky. Its quite attractive but without any fancy detailing of any kind and was priced accordingly. It is made to lean on and I don’t doubt that it would support the use of someone two or even three times my weight. (200+). Should I ever have to resort to it full time this is the cane or type of cane I will resort to. Have you tried Google, cane tips? It looks like your cane would serve as well but I would expect to lose the fish 2nd to falling over. Of course the bear and fish are a lot of what makes it exquisite.

Nice Cane!
Looking around in Lumberjocks is like going to a Museum of Natural Woodworking Talent. Even if you don’t use a cane it sure would make a great conversation piece when they look as nice as the ones you make! I have mine leaning next to our fireplace mantel ready for me if and when I need it.
