Glitter Cane: Made from a Hickory tree about 2” in diameter when it was cut down to get it out of the way of cutting a larger tree down.

The handle on the cane was cut on a 45 degree angle and flipped 180 degrees. I used a biscuit jointer to make a slot for a biscuit at the joint. When i rounded the sharp corner I exposed the slot and biscuit…Hmmm decided to cut off the corner and glue a scrap piece of Walnut that I had to cover up my boo boo. Now it is no longer a boo boo but an interesting look! I carved the handle to fit my hand and it is very comfortable to hold, I put a rope twist design on the cane but it was too bland so added another twist going opposite way over and under the first twist, still looks bland. Ended up carving down all the “diamonds” down and staining them walnut. Still looks bland so i stole some glitter from LOML and sprinkled different colors in each diamond after wetting it with varnish then more varnish over the glitter so it won’t rub off. Voila! Beautiful cane that attracts lots of attention especially from children.

I find it amazing the new shapes and designs that are created for canes and walking sticks . Good job Bearpie.
