Cane handles

At our Christmas craft show a gentleman took my card who was interested in getting a set of custom handles made for one of my dunnage canes.
He brought a slab of curly maple to the shop and we discussed the types of handles, one long grip and one ball end. He wanted a military challenge coin inset into the end of the long handle.
The handles are interchangeable via threaded inserts.
Will post a blog of the complete turning.
Turned on a Powermatic 3520b.
Sanded to 320 grit.
One coat of wipe on/wipe off 2# shellac.
Polished on the Beall system.

Beautiful work on the handle, very well finish and great shape. The challenge coin is a great accent.

Have your say...
