It is good to have time to spend in the shop. I have been to busy with life, This is a cane I started last year. Just now getting back to it. The handle is Mahogany and the shaft is a 36 inch teak flag pole that mounts on the back of a boat. I found it at a flea market for $5, When I finish shaping the handle I am going to do a few inches of either fish scale or basket weave from the base of the handle down the shaft.

Teak flag pole from a boat, how cool a find! This week at garage sales I found an old bar clamp I can use for cane making and an antique, circa. 1900, New Home sewing machine I got for my G-son, he makes tables with the bases. I usually don't find much stuff I can use at garage sales/flea markets. But its fun to look.

You did good on the hunt. I use the bar clamp to hole my cane handles in place when gluing the handle to the shaft.

The fish scale will look good when done ,I have looked at early Japanese style of doing these and will probably have a go at it but using a carp carved fish for the handle /It will add to then finish

post some pics whilst carving it will be interesting to follow it through the process

good luck
