New cane in the works. 1 inch diameter Walnut shank with a Mahogany handle. The second picture. Is my new thought for the handle. Swirled ends and a textured top on the grip. If not this cane then next on. Since I cannot draw, I like cut and paste.

Looks good, Randy. That idea with the scrollwork looks really cool. Out of curiosity, do you do the texturing with power or with a gouge?

I have done both. I like the results of the hand gouge best. I use a 1/4“ #8 palm tool. The dark handle is power. Should have used a larger burr.

Those are both really great. I think the half-textured one would be my favorite though, because the grain shows better.
That is my favorit too dww2. I am thinking I will do most of my cane handles that way.
