I have been making canes for vets and donating them for a few years now. Problem is I have been using Diamond Willow and my source has dried up. I do have access to black walnut, alligator juniper and oak. This is mostly in sawmill boards cut 1 1/2" to 2" thick by 12" and up by up to 14' long. I have bench top tools, router and table, belt sanders, planer, joiner, spindle sander, drill press and band saw. I now have to learn how to cut flat stock lumber to cane dimensions and shape. Hopefully I have the shaft figured out but making handles with sufficient strength and attaching them is driving me nuts. Hopefully some out there has an easy work around. I make and give these away on my own dime and holding down expense is important or I would just order premade handles.

Any advice appreciated,

I also make and give away custom hardwood slingshots

there are several different approach's a lot will depend of the type of handle you do . a market sick style probably more suited to a threaded bar others would do with a mortise and Tenon or dowel
