This is my very first cane to make, I made it for my dad as his Christmas gift. I made this cane out of Knotty Alder with Walnut for the handle, I found that the knotty Alder was very forgiving easy to work with and also offered sturdy support.

This cane looks very sturdy, and I like the detail on the handle. He will love it!

He let me know that was a fine cane and it has now replaced his $13.00 metal cane, he likes it a whole lot.

Thanks everyone and Merry Christmas

Very nice, I started making canes about 6 months ago and haven’t been able to stop. I make them for Disabled Veterans and continue to fine tune my skills. Hope we can share some ideas.
