Lizard Cane

Here is a cane I finished for a customer in California. She had seen the lizard cane I carved in pear and wanted one with a similar expression, since she rescues and has raised monitor lizards. They are pretty big critters, but I came up with a design that worked for both of us. This is from basswood and is finished with polyurethane and Briwax. Thank’s for looking!

Great work, the best I’ve done to a cane is carve my initials in it. The details are amazing!

You are very talented. I have no idea how you can get so much detailing in your work…. but it really turned out great!!!

-- I just got done cutting three boards and all four of them were too short. (true story)

This is quite a work of art Mike. I love the way you integrated the lizard handle with the stock. All beautifully done.
