I have an elderly friend that has recently taken a fall and is having trouble getting around. I would like to build him a high quality cane that he can make use of to make his life a little easier and more mobile. I have in stock, red oak, maple, cedar, walnut, and some other misc. but for the most part this is it.
If any of you have experience in building walking canes, I would greatly appreciate your help with dimensions, basic shape, finish, tips, and anything else that might help (pictures get my mind working faster than most instruction). I don’t want to make something that will be uncomfortable for him to use or something that might slip and cause another fall.
Thanks in advance for your help and suggestions.
