This cane has taken almost two months to complete - and I found great joy in salvaging that long/ugly chunk-o-Osage Orange laying on the ground covered with dried mud.

Good Work, man! Osage Orange is amazing, but from the 1st pic, I would not have thought the stick was worth the trouble. Final result, most excellent. The walnut shines, and Osage looks as tough and craggy as it is.

Looks good. I was at a drug store the other day and they had a scorched beechwood fritz handled cane. Most comfortable handles those.

I currently have exactly ten sticks - potential cane shanks - in-waiting. IF I continue one-per-week (am not making any promises) that will take me well into April or even early May. By then I should be able to get outta this place and find more.

We had some pretty severe winds here yesterday (40 MPH) and I'm betting I'm the only resident of this county who thought CANES!!!!!

:cool:

Ever heard the phrase "Beauty in the eye of the beholder ONLY"

:cool:

I've been searching the ground under a row of 6-8 Osage Orange trees since last summer/fall and finally found two...that was the only one with the word "TAKE ME" embossed in the bark.

As the others have noted, you have an eye for seeing through the mud and finding a cane. I would have thought that stick was too twisted to be any good. :thumbsu:
