This is my first attempt at making a cane. It was a fun project.
The ball has a turned tenon 1 & 1/2” long x 1”. The ball is a 3” diameter.
The tip has a solid brass insert, 1 & 1/8” at the join, 1” at the end to accept a 1” rubber tip. The tip also has a 1/2” tenon that goes 1 & 1/2” into the cane. The brass tip weighs 10.2 ounces, making the cane bottom heavy. I like that.
The cane started as a 2” x 2” x 30 & 1/2” blank. It has some sapwood that I wanted to show off. I gave the shaft a little bit of a rope twist, very shallow at the ends and deeper in the center. The overall length is 36”.
I used a little white Inlace at the top of the cane.
Mohawk clear lacquer finish.
