This market stick’s handle and center spacer is from the same maple as the cardigan handled cane I just posted.
There’s a lot of really nice variation in that chunk of wood.
The outer spacers are honey locust and claro walnut burl and the shank is natural alder.

The pictures have a red cast to them due to smoke in the air from all the fires in our region when the pictures were taken a few days ago.

This is very nice. I do like the curve you put into it, and should think that it would be very comfortable for the hand.

Very attractive. I hope those fires stay far away from your shop. Thanks for posting.
