Brother, you type worse than I do. 

 

Carving a likeness of Uncle Jerry would most likely be a lot of labor. A line work logo, like a steal face, or a bear, a terrapin, a scarab, not to hard. Could even be burnt, and tinted.

 

Me: Auditorium, Chicago, '71.

An image like this might work.

I'm not a carver but this is a lot simpler than most Grateful Dead images I've seen.  Other things to consider might be a dancing bear topper or maybe Jerry's head.

 

 

Another thought would be to buy a Grateful Dead button with an image you like and have it cast into the top of a cane.  I took a look and there are a lot of choices.

Something to keep in mind is how much support do you need from your cane?  That will affect handle style choices.

 Shawn Cipa's page http://shawnscarvings.com/ Go to his custom walking sticks and check out the Terrapin Station themed stick. This piece always blew me away. Might be right up your alley.
