This one is mine.  The lighter wood in the middle had a few stress cracks so I don't trust it to send out. I'm not sure of the species but I've had apparently sound pieces fall apart when I started cutting it. This piece was pretty enough I didn't want to throw it out either.

I just got around to putting a tip on it last night.

This one is a custom order.  Walnut shank and spacer with an exceptional piece of figured and spalted maple for the handle.  It got it's first coat of oil last night.

Great stuff, Rodney. I've always liked your cardigans. They look mighty comfy to hold.

Thanks Dana. They're pretty much my favorite. I was going to sell the one I'm keeping until I saw the cracks forming as it was drying.  The handle is longer than I would have made for myself.  It's better for those who prefer a 4 finger grip on their canes.

I just finished the little one and shipped it out today.
