It’s been a little while since i have been in the shop so i rushed the pics a little. The hand.e is cherry with black walnut dowel pins and a colar made of a random exotic scrap that has a nice red color. with a poplar shaft. Its around 38 inches tall. I really like the shape of the handle it reminds me of some kind of bird. I really liked making this cane. I may have to meke a couple more. Thanks looking all comments welcome pro and con.

clieb91 I used a hand plane and spoke shaves for the shaft.

NormG I can see the rabbit. With its ears laid back like its hiding in the bushes.

Mike This one was made from pieces that were big enough that i didn’t need to glue it up.

glad you like it.

My fault I didn’t explain it to well. I used a 5/8 oak dowel to join the handle to the shaft going through the collar and used epoxy to secure them and the walnut dowel to help pin it all togeather and add some extra strength. mmh had to tell me how it was done. Hope that helps ..Paul

You have a really nice look to this cane Dozuki, a sleek modern look, nice work ! Did you turn the walnut dowel ?

Say Mike Ogden here is a website full of helpful info on cane making
and if I could be so bold to suggest aswell 2 books which are a wealth of info -
‘Stickmaking’ by Clive George + Andrew Jones
’’The Craft of Stickmaking’ by Loe Gowen

Dozuki I hope you don’t mind that I’ve included this info, its not my intent to hi-jack your thread, but I just know how hard it was to find information on cane making when I was looking for it.

that is no problem. actually thanks for the pointer i will have to go look for those books and i admit that I purchased the dowels at woodcraft. I just know i would ruin a nice piece of walnut if i tried to turn it down to 1/4 inch and keep it even . I am glad you liked it. I will be posting another soon. I hope.

You got the dowels at woodcraft, oh well, we don’t have a woodcraft here in Canada.

BTW I miss spelled ‘The craft of stick making’ the authors’ name is L’eo’ Gowen.
