Here is a cane I just completed. The shaft is a small tree that has been twisted and shaped by honeysuckle vines as it grew and the handle is cherry. I removed the bark on this one because it was a little loose and flakey, and found these tortoise-shell like colors underneath. They seem to go well with the handle which is not real fancy….just carved a comfortable shape that will hang on your arm and put some little dimples on the ends, similar to a briar pipe. I finished it with several thinned coats of a poly mixture and sanded it between coats, finishing up with a buffed coat of wax. It’s kinda wild looking, but the colors of the wood are pretty. Thanks for looking!
