So decided to attempt my first cane making, so to be clear, trying to make..shape a cane with a angle grinder is not as simple as i though. 

So yesterday my step son broth me some scarp wood that he got from a friend. nice interesting pieces, so with that i made my first cane. 

for the handle i used spawled maple and some other dark wood. and the shaft was a square dowel that i had to round off the best i can. 

atone point while sanding the handle droke off and had to improvise. fixed it for the most part but the angle grinder sliped and took off to much at the neck ....needless to say i wont try to sell  this one, but maybe use it for myself down the road. 

cheers

Cool! I thought the handle was zebrawood until I read your description. Turned out nice.

The cane looks really nice! If you started with a square dowel, a spoke shave might make rounding easier.
