This is a custom cane made for a young lady in her 80’s. Her son commissioned this for her and they both admire fine woods so I tried to find a highly figured piece of Amboyna and accented it with the Brazilian Ebony and a nice piece of Birdseye Maple that has some dark coloration due to mineral staining and may also have some Ambrosia worm discoloration which makes it all the more interesting. This is a rustic but still elegant combination of woods and these woods are sturdy hardwoods, yet still lightweight. The handle measures approximately 6 ” long x 2 3/4 ” high. The cane is 34” tall.
