My 3 newest canes made from appeton wood from Indonesia I used 4 coats linseed oil and applied 2 coats Johnsons paste wax and buffed it off.

Good looking pieces Randy. The color on the one on far right really pops!

If I might ask, where did you get wood from Indonesia?

Those are really nice looking functional walkers there. Great use of recycled wood.

I agree, the one on the right is really visually striking. But all look good.

Had to look the wood up. Evidently is often used for truck beds because of it strength and water resistance. That it also looks something like mahogany is irrelevant in that situation. Seems like it is close to ideal for stick making too.
