Getting back in the shop after lots of other things this summer.

Thought I’d like a couple cane racks to store any canes I might make. Found some nice wood and started on some multi cane holding racks, but just could not get into a design.
Somewhere along the design stage this showed up. So, change of plans.
Initial design only had four toes on a stand with a plate cap on top. Kind of changed as the build went on. This is what finally came out of the dust.
Really looks good with the falconry cane.
Don’t know what the wood of the toes or the base are. Found wood at a local wood scrap bin. The top cap is pallet mahogany, salvaged. The only purched wood is the rosewood feathers.
I glued with biscuits to attach the toes and feathers.
This gave me a few more ideas for custom stands for my carved canes. Great getting back to working in the shop.

Hope you enjoy…............................

WOW! That is some cane holder! It’s a shame you have to leave it behind when you take the cane out for a walk.

Very beautiful carving and stand! When I read the title I thought it would be just a run of the mill stand. I should have know better! It is certainly a work of art!!! I don’t even have a cane and I want one! :)

Thanks Sheila.
I don’t really need a cane, but I do like to carry one in case of dogs, at times. So A fancy cane to sit and look good while not in use sounds good to me. They come in handy to lean on at times too….......;).................

That is really really amazing. Hmmm.. Maybe it sounds vain, but I find myself trying to compete to be better on the quality and uniqueness in front of fellow Lumber Jocks carvers. Thanks for pushing me with such great work. My Assistant looked over my head earlier and said .... “Whoa… cool!” So I showed him the rest your work. You inspire me! Thanks

Thanks Lou…...........

EP, Thanks, and I hear you on being inspired to try harder with the examples shown on this site. I appreciate your comment, but I still feel like a newby. Still learning…....trying new things…......surprising myself mostly…........
