Continuing on the whale theme, here is the dolphin.

The main difference in this cane is, I used a steel, all thread, dowel, to connect the dolphin to the wave. I was a little worried about strength right there. Feels really good. I used wood dowels on the shaft.

The dolphin is, maple.
The wave is, plum.
Ebony spacers.
Rosewood insert.
Walnut shaft.

I hope you like…........thanks for looking…............Jack….....................

Beautiful again. I love the waves and the curl of the maple through the dolphin. The area where you keep your best pieces for your family must be getting full:-)

Fighting these projects, worrying over details, sanding for hours on end, well, these comments make all the effort worth it. I really appreciate the feed back from my peers, it brings joy to my shop time.
I am getting a few stocked up. I’ve given enough away for a while, I think. I’m counting on Jordans information, that there are buyers out there and I don’t plan on under valuing my work. I’m afraid they will be hanging around for a while, lol…............Thanks…...................Jack…......................
