I have recently made a couple of canes and I am considering making more and selling them. I have a good collection of exotic wood that I could use.
I am thinking about a cane with a maple shaft and an amboyna burl handle. Of course, good strength is important for a cane in the shaft and handle. I cannot find any information on the strength of this wood.. Since it is a burl it may not have typical strength characteristics.
Does anyone have knowledge, insight or suggestions regarding the strength of amboyna burl?
FYI – I have thought of burying a wood dowel in the handle. Of course, that is more work and I don’t know if it would help.
