Finished these two recently. The first is my take on the Bat Masterson cane. Beech shaft with black and clear lacquer. Figured silver (chrome) was more appropriate than the gold version online since 1) a gold topped cane would have made you a target for every low life out there to steal it and 2) silver was more readily available to smiths and artists. I also found some great cone shaped brass feet. the inside is straight so you only need to cut a straight tenon to fit them. the other cane is an oak shaft and an unknown handle. Now that I have a band saw I tried my first wooden handle. The handle material was a block of unknown wood found in a junk pile.

Might be maple but it's not laminated. It comes from a solid 4" x 4" a friend of mine found during a house demolition. Wish I had some more of it. I would love to turn a knob handle out of this wood.
