Just thought I’d try something a little different . Antique glass door knob tops a diamond willow shaft . 3 diamonds make a band around the shaft were left with thier bark in place – why ? – I don’t know , just did . The bottom is tipped with a brass tip . These tips are getting very hard to find now days but these brass tips work great with a high quality rubber cane tips. I wonder if they are no longer being made? I perfer these tips to the large heavy turned brass tips , that customers can’t get replacement rubber ends for but I digress.

Materials
Wood – Bebbs Willow
Top – Antique glass door knob
Leather hanging strap
Bottom – Brass Tipped
Finish – Wipe on poly

Thank you for your interest

Cool, I’ve been saving some door knobs, have not gotten around to them yet.

That’s a nice stick, turned out really well…................
