Found a good deal on a chunk of figured maple and made this out of it. All from the same board so it matches well.

One more done, now what? Maybe, probably more. I need to get some wood to make more of the bald eagle canes. I like those lots too…...........

Thanks Eddie.

Yes, all hand worked, though I don’t carve them with a knife. I use a rotary tool mostly, but these falcon canes I use files and sandpaper mostly.

Nice cane Jack. Beautiful grain this piece. Some one that came into the Gallery asked me if I carved canes? I told them I wouldn’t know where to start. Then I told them if they wanted to see some Beautiful canes to look you up!!!!!

Nicely done Jack. Looks like a comfortable fit to the user’s hand, and that’s really important. Keep them coming.
