Thanks for sharing. Nice looking sticks. I like your inlays and the lion. What are the woods?

Attached are 2 photos of a little Bois D'Arc cane I made about 20 years ago. In the first photo, there is a dime to show it's diameter. If the wood is strong, the cane doesn't need to be big and heavy to be strong. I hit a Blue Heeler that was attacking me very hard and was sure it broke, but it didn't. It is also very light weight and easy to carry. It's one of my favorites.

Click on photo to enlarge, then hit the back button to go to next photo or you'll lose the forum page.

Thanks JGB, I like it because it is such a light weight. Our American Indians used it to make hunting bows. My dad's farm had fence posts 60 years old with no rotting or termite damage. The down side is the posts cure so hard you can't drive a staple into them.
