Hello everyone,
Is it possible or is it a good idea to use an olive wood lumber for a cane blank? I’ve looked everywhere and could not find any turned olive wood walking canes. Thanks

Maybe wrong but Olive wood mostly used for handles and stick portion some other wood.

Only found 12” & 18” Olive wood spindle blanks so would have to piece together enough to make handle & stick. By time you glue blanks for length and width or buy hardware for joining sections together not sure worth the time & expense.

Good luck with though!
