I know I need to get more pics, it’ll happen eventually. This is the second one of these I have done. The first one I built went to my dads girlfriend and it was actually stolen. This one I made for my uncle who needed a cane more than my dads girl. It’s walnut wrapped around a maple core, the handle is ribbon maple. It’s finished with ten coats of wipe on poly.

Welcome back! Nice cane. Now I know what you’ve been doing with yourself, at least part of the time.

Nice. Did you use a Legacy ornamental mill? They work nice for something like this. (I know, because I got one)

To get the spiral carve around the maple I ripped a half-inch by half-inch chunk of maple 32 inches long and cut four pieces of walnut that I glued on each side of the maple. Then I carved through the walnut down to the maple in a spiral curve (much like carving thru the wood of a pencil down to the graphite). No steaming or wood bending needed!
