Working on the falcon canes. Fairly easy shaping with hand tools. Wore out all my rotary’s again. Don’t really need one with this design. So I’ll probably be making more similar to this.

Mahogany, rosewood shaft, with a little purple heart spacers, mahogany falcon.

Thanks for looking…............

Superb job of shaping your falcon. Beautifully made. Haven’t seen you in while, Jack. Are you okay?

Nice work Jack! How big is the dowel you use for the core?

I’m fine Paul, thanks for asking. You know, life’s what happens, while you’re making other plans. John Lennon… I’m hanging in there as best I can.

Thanks you old Survivor….......I used 5/8 on this one…..............

Thanks Roger…......I was lucky, a friend searched a pile of scraps from a wood shop of some sort near his home and found that nice mahogany for me. I’ve been real lucky finding nice wood.

That’s a really lovely cane, Jack. I really like the stylized, sleek quality of the falcon.

Real cool, Jack! It’s great the way the shaft is shaped. Is it octagonal full length? That is awesome.
