Because I am disabled and use a cane whenever I walk, I like making canes. I’ve made quite a few, but this one is much different from any other cane I have made.
It is made from a branch/stick of osage orange (aka hedge-wood). I deliberately left it quite crude and rough.
There are several worm holes in this wood including 2 larger holes that might compromise strength. I filled those holes with epoxy. The second picture shows one of those holes. Dealing with epoxy – what a mess.
This cane is a little heavier than I usually make and the shaft has virtually no spring in it. Yet, it is still very useable. It also gets a lot of attention.
FYI – It is NOT for sale.
