This cane was made for my old buddy, wood cutter, Gary. To be exact, for his girlfriend.
He’s really been discovering the beauty in the maple he has been cutting for firewood. So he has been saving me some really nice chunks.
I can’t afford his firewood or repay him for the cool chunks he’s been giving me, so the cane. His girlfriend really liked my falcon cane and I thought a cane out of some of his scraps would be cool.
I took an outside edge and went from there. Think it turned out pretty cool. I used a wedge of spalted maple for the stand. Another of his firewood pieces.
No lathe involved. All hand work. I’ll figure that lathe out eventually. Or a jig, which I’ve seen on LJ’s for using the router with. I just can’t seem to stop to do those things right now.
Thanks for looking, later…...........
