The historic backgrounds are a good read. The next article in that section had a brief about the woods of "Old Ironsides." What I learned there was that black locust, not too uncommon where I live, can be used for "tree nails." I have in mind making a few "Tau" topped canes, and was wondering how I might fasten them without metal hardware. I think I just had a clue.
