This is the top of a cane that I made for my Dad. You guessed it a retired Truck Driver. I have only been working with wood for about a year, so I hope that I’m not embarrassing myself. The stick and base are white pine and I carved the dog out of basswood. Although you cant really see it I thought the spiked collar really brought it all together.

What could possibly be embarrassing about making something for your dad that was exactly to his taste? I think it is fabulous. I’ll bet he smiles every time he uses it! I think it is great fun too.
