This is another cane I worked on this weekend it is a piece of twisted privet hedge. The wood in privet hedge is white so I spelled off the outer layer of bark and left the inner layer(cambium layer)to give it some color, I used boiled linseed oil then applied a tung oil finish high gloss. It has a map!e ball for a handle.

Fine stick. You are lucky. There is a small amount of privet where I live, but the weather is a little to cold on average. Supposed to be tough durable wood.

]I have used privet here in the UK, I found the bark pretty boring, (grey, with no features) I made the stick and put a purchased handle on and finished it with Danish oil, over time the bark has turned more brown but it is a little heavy, like you say the wood is very dense.
