The handle is carved from a white tailed deer antler tine, and then stained with coffee. The handle is held in place by a dowel drilled in from the front , this dowel also holds the front walnut cap in place. The maple wedge forces the top of the walnut cane shaft to fit tightly in the hole thru the antler. The bottom 2/3’s of the cane shaft was turned on a lathe. Then the top 1/3 of the cane shaft was hand carved up to the handle. A piece of cows’ horn was heated , then flatened and mounted between the handle and cane shaft.
