That's an awesome cane/stick!
I bought a number of "rejects" from a Missouri kiln that dries the logs somewhat and splits them for bow makers. The Indians / Native Americans used to like it for their bows. The rejects aren't good enough for bows and are a lot cheaper.
These were sentimental, as that Bois d'Arc or "Osage Orange" was preferred over cedar for fence posts when I was a kid, and I remember bending many a steeple in a post when string barbed wire.
I'm about to begin working on one for a Vietnam teammate who now has M.S. and could really use one. We spoke today, and he's going to send me the total length and the grip interval that he prefers. I'll embed a unit lapel pin for 1st Air Naval Gunfire Liaison Company (ANGLICO). I'll finish mine with WATCO Danish Oil, which has turned out nicely on my last several sticks for sisters in law.
Hope mine turns out as nicely as yours.
