Big Tall Cane #106: Cocobolo, Brazilian Ebony & Honduran Rosewood

This is a very tall cane for a large hand and can uphold substantial weight. The handle is a Harrison style that has an ample finger catch to allow one a firm grip that will not easily slip off. The exposed tenon gives superior strength to connect the Cocobolo handle and collar/upper shaft. The lower shaft is made of Brazilian Ebony also has a solid hidden tenon. A wedge of Rosewood anchors the exposed tenon in the handle. This is a very heavy cane due to the very dense wood and large size. The handle is approximately 7.5”-8” long and the cane is 40+” tall and can be cut to suit. Created by Michael Hodnett.

That is nice.
You could just sit and look at the grain.

Wow, Meilie!!

I really love the transition collar and the Cocobolo grain. Looks like you may have some competition from hubby ;^)

I simply love it.
The wood, the shape, the little wedge.

I think that of all the canes you have made this one is my favorite! I have large hands and this looks like it will fit perfect although I don’t, at present, need a cane.
