I just finished this one.  A rustic market stick style cane with a weathered red oak shank, black walnut collar and figured red maple handle.  The handle has some nice curl in the tip that the pictures don't show well.

Thanks Rohn.  I tried rounding the top corner of the handle over more than I usually do.  It's ok but I probably won't do it again.  I like the more defined corner at the top that I normally do better.

I really like dead oak limbs when I can find them straight and sound enough to use.  IMO they have great colors and texture. These rustic sticks generally sell pretty quickly too.

Great blend of the two styles, rustic and formal. The walnut sets the two off very nicely. Great stuff!

Thanks Dana.  I'm working on another rustic stick right now that I'll post when I'm done.
