I've been making a bunch of canes for my Etsy store all spring. Most are just variations on stuff I've already posted here. I did just finish a couple yesterday and thought I'd share.
The first one is a market stick with a peeled shank.
Peeled western red maple shank with a cherry handle and raintree wood spacers.
It's a fairly heavy shank and has a bt of a curve that puts the bottom of the cane an inch or so closer to the center of the handle. I also opened up the crook a bit compared to my other market sticks so it's easier to hang on your arm when you want both hands free. I went with the market stick style because I think it's a good match for larger shanks like this one.
The second one is my latest Cardigan stick.
Elm handle with raintree wood and spalted maple spacers with a western red maple shank.
I've been pretty busy in the shop and have been playing with different forms lately. I have a couple hiking sticks and a couple more rustic canes in the works.
Thanks for looking.
