One of my father’s folk art style canes – kind of a weird commission, but then again well not really we get all sorts of interesting and unique requests!

The standard material on the top carvings is poplar or basswood I forget which this is. The shaft is diamond willow. The mermaid acted as the T handle and a conversation starter!

This cane is nice, Eric. Is there anything that ya’ll don’t make?

Hmmmm …. I think between the gang of us IDK of anything we can’t pull off! Everyone’s eclectic and eccentric so randomly we try things!
