I started this one for a client yesterday.  It's just waiting for finish and a tip.

Oak crook handle, holly spacer and an alder shank.

The handle is the big piece on the upper left.

How it looks now.  Sorry for the poor white balance.

Sweet! That oak has an almost antler-y look to it. Customer is sure to be pleased with that one.

Very nice work. I especially like the unfinished shaft. I have a few sticks I collected this past winter that I plan to top with a nice handle mixing that finished and rustic look.

It just got its first coat of oil last night.  I'll take a better picture today. Dead oak develops nice colors.

I finished it Saturday and am just now getting around to posting the finished cane.  At least I remembered to take a few pictures before it was shipped.

I liked the way this one turned out.  If it wasn't for a customer I may have kept it.

The oil really brought out the colors in that oak. Looks great! Just me or is that a different type of tip than you usually put on?

I switched from copper to brass for the ferrule part.  I think the brass classes it up a bit.
