Tribute to the art of falconry. And a cool field stick!
Been working on this since just before I finished my last cane. Just over a month. Never thought it would have turned out as good as it did. A real challenge for me. Could be better but I’m happy with it.
Maple falcon, walnut glove. The shaft wood was marked, ind. rosewood when I bought it. It’s more like ebony. It only cost 16 dollars, so I’m sure it is not ebony. If I knew how dark it was I would have saved it and used it like ebony. It came all waxed up, so when I started working it, I was committed. Dark is good.
The glove, walnut, is so dark, I like the shaft being darker. Kind of was hoping for more grain patterns though. Oh well. I didn’t take a picture of the tip, but I put in a picture of the type of tip it has.
Yes I have a short history with the sport. Nothing to acclaim, but memories for a life time. Not a day goes by I don’t think about those fantastic days of youth, freedom and the wild.
Was thinking to dedicate this project to Martin and his wonder project,” LumberJock’s”. Don’t really suppose this cane would exist without this site and what it’s influence on me has been. “Thanks Martin”.
Hope you all enjoy…................................
