This cane was commissioned as a birthday present for a gentleman by his wife. He was used to using an aluminum cane with a large curved handle and he wanted a simple straight handle to accomodate his large hand and needed a cane strong enough to support most of his weight.
He chose the Texas Ebony for the unique grain, as it has golden yellow steaks intermingled with the deep chocolate brown of the wood. This is especially beautiful in the sunlight. I made double collars of Texas Ebony and Padauk to taper the handle and shaft with the subtle curves that I like to use in my canes so it doesn’t look awkward. The Padauk shaft goes nicely with the deep rich browns and gold of the Texas Ebony.
The handle is approximately 8” long, the shaft diameter 1.5” – 1” for extra sturdy support.
