My brother broke his foot a while back and finally is able to walk again. But he wanted a cane because he is still unstable and it’s hard to get around quickly. We turned this cane in three pieces with tenons turned on one end and mortises drilled into the other. To hide the joints we turned small rounds at them because it was difficult and time consuming to make them the exact same diameter. We epoxied the joints together for a strong tight fit. The middle rod is ziricote and the top and bottom are wenge, just because that’s what we had laying around. He finished it with tung oil and lacquered the top so it doesn’t stink up your hand during use.
