These are canes I made for 2 separate clients but both were gifts for their fathers. I really like the look and feel of the Fritz style handle so here is my take on it. The first one is made from Black Walnut, Curly Maple and Peruvian Walnut. I wanted to have the dark and light contrast carried throughout the entire piece so I laminated the shank with the Maple and Peruvian Walnut and did a reverse of that on the handle with Black Walnut with Maple Accents. The second cane is made up of Apple, Peruvian Walnut and Curly Maple for the handle and White Ash for the shank. I loved the color of the Apple in relation to the other woods. My standard finish of Danish Oil and Gunstocks Finish was used on both pieces. Thanks for taking a look!
