This is a tall cane that has an extra long but still somewhat slender handle for a more tailored appearance. The handle made of solid extra fancy Amboyna which as a beautiful grain of light and dark swirls consistently throughout the piece. It is approximately 6” Long x 1.5” Tall x 1.25” Wide. The cane is 39” tall. The collars are of Brazilian Ebony and Manzanita Burl adding color and texture and height to neck of the handle and allow the lines to flow together to join the solid Padauk shaft. The subtle curves add a little elegance to the handle and the curve on the underside of the long end is a finger catch so the baby finger has better leverage to hold and swing the cane forward. The curves may be subtle but I like to take my time to make sure that the lines are just right for both comfort and aesthetics.
This cane could be worn by either gender, as it’s tall and strong with ample hand room and the height can be cut down for a shorter person. This fits my medium sized ladies hand well and a larger hand would be comfortable using this too.
I like to create my pieces to show off the natural grain of the wood as best as possible while allowing for the structural, comfort and aesthetic properties to be addressed, as I believe a cane user should not have to be limited to using an unsightly mass produced cane that does not give them any sense of pride and stability and most of all comfort to use. I hope that both the user and on-looker can enjoy my work as much as I enjoy creating it.
