Hey Don, I hope you are going to apply for a “Patent” for this fabulous idea.
Only trouble is you forgot to fit a “Stubby Holder” to it to keep the drinks cool.
LOVE IT>

A cane with eyes is bound to make the owner more confident in seeing where they are going. After all, you would think that two pairs of eyes is always better than one. Nice work.

“SEEING EYE” Is a term for the blind. Example http://www.seeingeye.org/?referrer=http://www.google.com/cse?hl=en&ie=UTF-8&cx=partner-pub-6518056906525827:7065194379&q=seeing%20eye. Is the person pictured in the photo blind?

Desert Woodworker, Is this organization in any way connected with the Pilot Dogs of Columbus, Ohio? My self and some other Forty et Eighters organized and sponsored an Alumni Convention here in Ft. Wayne, In. back in 1981, I still have the engraved Zippo lighter that they gave me for all of this work.

Awesome. Wish I’d thought of this back when my wife was using her guide canes. She’s since upgraded to a guide dog and would kill me if I put googly eyes on her Lab.

Pretty inventive! Wasn’t sure just WHAT I’d see when I opened this post, based on the title.

Great job, they say laughter is the best medicine and you gave me my dose today. As a fellow cane maker, how did you attach the knob on the top? Is that just a dowel joining the pieces or is it more involved? Thanks for posting.
