My father collected many examples of desert grass he found growing outside of Tucson, AZ. He turned them into walking sticks and canes. I inherited his supply, jigs, tools, and other stuff when he died. I just need to get started. So far, I have sanded my cane in preparation for refinishing, but that was eight or nine years ago. What can I say? Work has kept me busy! :)

I look forward to learning from y'all.

wow, that's quite a collection - is that the desert grass in the big can ?
the bottom photo, I have a limb from a lemon tree with the spikes cut off, it looks very much like yours with the bumps.

Yes.
Is that really grass or what we call cane here in Texas? I've never cut one to see if our cane is solid or not.
Well, my father called it "a desert grass." I never had any reason to doubt that, but I didn't collect it and I'm not an expert.
