More pallet wood handles. From the same scrap pile as the last falcon canes, but different board. I only got about six nine inch sections that were usable. Lots of nail holes and splits in the rest of the wood.

These matched up pretty well so I decided to make them a set.

The only purchased wood on these is the walnut and rosewood spacers. The shaft maple comes from my firewood friend. Been saving that for a while.
The stand is made from various scrap pieces laying around waiting.

Thanks for looking, any questions, just ask…...............

Love your style jack. I’ve got a few dogwood sapling blanks I want to carve and I’m picking up a lot of ideas and inspiration from you.
