This is the first walking stick I made for a customer. It is a Shillelagh style walking stick with a Spalted Maple knob top mounted on a Natural Hazel shank. The collar is made from some old steel that I recycled and the tip has been fitted with a brass and steel ferrule. It has been finished with walnut stain, black enamel and spray enamel clear coat.

Nice work.
I use rubber chair leg caps on my canes, they don’t slip as much.

Great idea! I use a variety of different tips including rubber ones depending on the project. I agree the rubber tips avoid any slipping and I usually include 1 over the brass ferrules with any sticks I sell. The brass ferrules help to really finish them off. Thanks for looking and your comments!
