Had some time this afternoon and was able to mount one of the walnut and zebrawood cardigan handles on a 1" cherry shank. I used a 5/16th threaded rod and Gorilla Glue to bond the two together,Over the years I have found that I prefer to finish shaping the handle after it is attached to the shank. Not every one does. It just work best for me.

Worked on shaping up the handle this morning dampened it to get a look at the contrast in the woods. I think it will be a good looking cane. I am not sure if I will ad some carving on the shaft. I like the look now. I will have to think about it.

I think the contrasting woods and grain patterns are beautiful in themselves, along with a very nice form and if it were mine, I would finish smoothing the form and put a finish on it. Very nice.

That's the method I use too. I can't see getting a good fit at the joint where the handle fits the shaft any other way unless you are using something like a metal collar.
