Anyone know the procedure for tying a knot in the end of this cane topper? I would like to try it, but I have found no explanations on how it is done! Anyone of you experts have experience with this?

Hard to tell in that pic, but I imagine it is carved not 'bent' just by looking at the grains. Could be mistaken though.

Usually bends are made by steam being applied to an area and slowly forming them with clamps or jigs.

IF I were to attempt it the wood making the knot would be a small branch and I would tie it up green and let it sit with teh rest of teh wood for a year or so then make the handle and shave the branch.

I'm not sure if it was carved or bent! I was hoping one of you guy's knew how to do it!! My impression was that it was bent -- but I could be wrong -- it's happened a couple of times :rolleyes:

I'm thinking it's been carved. I've seen guys carve wooden chain out of 2x2. I'm thinking it might be the same idea.
