ALERT: (March 22, 2013) This cane has been recently STOLEN from my client. If you see of know of any information about this cane or the other two canes posted below (#073 and #086) please contact me.

This is not my usual style of cane making, but I was trying to get a rush replacement for a client who had both of his custom ergonomic canes that I had made for him previously, STOLEN from his car. It’s a sad day when someone who doesn’t need to use a cane feels they should break into a person’s car to steal from another who needs to use a walking aide.

The handle is made of Lychee which is very hard and usually has some interesting grain pattern. This one is subtle, not quite as dynamic as the fiddleback pattern in the original cane I made. The collar is Padauk and shaft is made of solid Purpleheart, so the cane is quite sturdy.

Here are the original canes made that have been STOLEN. If you happen to see them anywhere please notify me so I can alert my client who would love to have them back.

Cane #073
Cane #086

Thank you,

Meilie,

Even your “rush replacements” are a work of art!!

It is so disheartening to see our society degrading to have such little regard for others.

Great job, I’m sorry that you have to make a replacement under these circumstances.

It is absolutely wonderful. People’s lack of awareness related to their actions amazes me. Fortunately you counter balance that. : ^ )

Meilie, nice job on the quickie. Too bad scumbags like that exist. One thing is for sure. You have a dedicated client! That is one strong cane!

Meilie, Wonderful work! I am sorry that this had to be a replacement. I wish that our society today would think before doing something like this, I believe in Karma! They will need one for their self before long!
Great work on the rush cane, maybe you can figuire out how to put low-jack in them or a GPS chip so the scumbuckets will get caught if the try it again. God bless Great work!
