Hi my name is Scott and I just discovered this site and joined, I very much enjoyed looking through he site and seeing some of the things people made. I am a walking cane builder and have been making them for 15 years and sell them on line and at craft shows occasionally.

Hi Scott. Spent a day in Spokane a few years ago. Very nice place, hope to get back to the area at some point.

I really admire the works you posted in the gallery section. Your years of practice are evident. Everything looks very professional. I particularly like the "palm" handle sticks. I've been messing w. grip area shapes since I started a few years ago. Your treatment looks to be a nice innovation. Have any shots with a hand on the grip?

Welcome aboard Scott! We visit Seattle from time to time, and love the area. I'm an amateur compared to you, I spend so much effort on a stick for family and old Marines that I'd have to charge $10,000 each to make it worthwhile, but I have fun nonetheless.

I'll look forward to seeing some of your creations.

Hello Rodney, yes we are neighbors, I have been to your area many times I use to have my business in Vancouver and moved to the east side of the state for the dry weather and four season. Concerning my work I have been at it a long time and that just a sample of some of the recent stuff, thank you.

@ gdenby, here are a couple pictures of me holding a palm grip walking cane I finished last week. The palm grip is not my design they have been available for years generally found made of plastic and an aluminum shaft. I saw a need to make them out of wood so I bought a duplicator and figured it out and since then I made about 70 of them. The original name for the handle is called a Fisher I assume was the name of the doctor that came up with it.
