My Son, finally got the computer all hooked so I can down load my photo’s. Yippee!

I’ve been thinking on this design for a while and finally got around to giving it a try.

Walnut for the wings, figured maple for the head and tail. More maple for the feet, stand and large insert, the small spacers are rosewood, with a walnut shaft.

I used a small finger joint bit I found in my clutter and it worked just right.

That’s about it. If you have any questions or comments, feel free.

Back to my latest project for now. I think I’m jinxing it by mentioning too soon. Have a ways to go yet. Had another set back and will take a little longer….......................It’s still looking good though…............

Boiled linseed oil finish. I really like the way it builds over time….............

That is quite a handsome cane there! I like the original shapes and details along with dark wood accents. Very nicely done.

Good choice of figure. Let’s keep that bird flying! Nice use of the different woods. How did you attach the eagle and pedestal to the cane itself? I saw one a while back that was laminated wood and turned on a lathe with a bird as the grip.

Thanks Jocks….......

Knothead62, I epoxy a dowel through the center, very strong. I use a two part marine epoxy that slow drys to a very solid bond.
I use a flex-shaft roto-zip and files and sand paper to shape everything. I even use a belt sander to round the shaft after carving rough round. No laths involved in the process.
