So, while waiting for my first haul of sticks to dry and season, I'll be concentrating on finished canes. This is my first that I made for my dad. The shaft is red oak with a brass fritz style handle. The shaft is stained with Minwax oil stain with two coats of Formby's tung oil for the finish.100_2062.JPG 100_2063.JPG

Very nice. That oak has some beautiful grain in it.

Thanks, I've always liked the grain of red oak. This was just a cheap dowel I got from Lowes. Can't wait to get some more exotic dowels from my suppliers.

Walker, the stain I used was Minwax Sedona Red. That's what gives it the actual color. I was a bit worried about the color because under the florescent lights in my shop the first coat had a pinkish hue. But I did three coats of stain for this finish color.
