Here is another cane that I made for a wounded veteran. I am honored to be part of a group of wood carvers who make canes for American soldiers that have been wounded while serving their country. In general, these soldiers are Purple Heart recipients. They are asked if there is anything special that they would like included on the cane. Usually, it is things like unit patches, Combat Infantry Badges and such.

Very nice work and a very worth while project. How do you do the ‘art work’? Are you burning the wood, is done by laser, or? It all looks beautiful!

I lay out the graphics on the shaft and then carve/engrave them in with a high speed rotary tool.
