This is my first time to put on a hame handle on one of my canes. I used Indonesian wood for the shank with boiled linseed oil and a polyurethane finsh. I'm going to keep this one myself.

Nice job Randy. I like the octagon shafts you do on a lot of your sticks. What method do you use to shape them?
The pieces I start out with is a 2x2 I take them to my daddy and cut them out on his table saw we cut out two sides flat then we cut it at a 45 degree about 4 cuts its hard for me to explain.

Nice cane Randy. I have found one issue with the hames top. They slide over easy. I suggest putting a brass eye screw In the hole in the back of the hames for a strap or piece of cord to hang it up with.

Good idea I might just try that I got some paracord or I'll get some leather boot string and get my Daughter to braid it.

I used one for years and found the brass top did not stay good looking because of palm sweat. I tried everything so eventually painted it.

Yes that's brass isn't it? Nice job there Randy love it. If left would it develop a nice patina on it so you wouldn't have to fight hand prints etc?
