This is a cane for the big man or the guy with big hands. Kind of my “Field of dreams cane”, build it and they will come. I hope.
I had a few pieces of the broken walrus ivory cribbage board, so with the arctic theme still going, I got the idea for a walrus. Those are walrus tusks.
If you have not watched a trained walrus, they are super intelligent. Amazing animals.
Fun way to bide my time. Lots of hours, lots of, “are you kidding me”, to myself. But I kept at it anyway. Kind of like it now. Big for most of us, but really comfortable and not as heavy as it might look. Really.
I tried inlaying the walrus into the maple, that was the really hard part. Got it as good as I could.
Don’t know what else to say. If you have any questions, go ahead and ask.
Hope you enjoy, Jack….......................................
