Cane made from a branch that fell from a neighbor’s tree during an ice storm. Some sort of Ash but not sure exactly – the tree grew from one of those bareroot twigs that his kids brought home for Arbor Day 30 years ago. About 36 inches tall. Added copper wire and agate stone beads as decorations. Finished with Spar Varnish to provide protection for heavy use. Standard 1 inch rubber tip from drug store (not visible in photo). If anyone has any suggestions on where to find metal tips, I would be very grateful. Thanks for looking, I hope you like it.

You did a great job on this cane. Really like the copper and stone you put on too. As to the metal cane tips, just go to google images and type that in.

Welcome to L.J.’s and keep on keepin’ on.

Good job on this

Rockller or Woodcraft should have the tips.
