A second go at turning and shaping a cane. The top 1/3 of the shaft and the handle where hand shaped ,the bottom of the shaft was turned. The walnut shaft is part of a garage sale find , I have only 2 pieces left now [rats]. I chose lace wood for the handle for it’s dark colour to match the walnut shaft . I ended up using 2 leather washers on each side of the white deer antler collar , I was hoping to get some bison horn for the washers but at this time of year the farmers around here are very busy with thier harvest , soon I hope. Sanded everything down to 800g , finished with poly [satin] .

Wood – shaft/walnut , handle/lace wood
Collar – White tailed deer antler
Washers – Leather
Bottom – Brass tipped
Finish – Satin Poly

Thank you for your interest .

I like the simple yet elegant design of this cane and you did a great job on it.
