Being this is not a youngster club, i thought that I might do something to show; for some of us with 6 decades or more of sawdust clogging us down.
Made from a branch that was to neat to be firewood, ash, I think.
Cut the 45 then used gorilla glue and then put in a 3/8ths dowel into handle. I added a cross brace also using bamboo skewers for the dowels on it. The cane was just lightly sanded enough to take off any possible slivers.
I did a light torching and then 2 coats of water based clear finish brushed on. Deliberately left a little long, easy to shorten—hard to lengthen.
The tip was just purchased at Lowe’s.
I had wanted to bend it, but, could not seem to get it to stay. Might have been to impatient.
