Well work is moving along this week.
I've got a few trophy jobs in house - and thankfully the rain is holding off so I can get a finish on them.
In the meantime I've finished another cane:
The mesquite, a rich brown wood, runs all the way through the walking stick to ensure stability and strength.
The bloodwood and fiddle back maple serve as a vibrant contrasting accent at the knob.
The pictures just don't do this beautiful item justice. The true colors are deep and rich with a wonderfully polished gleam.
Includes a non-slip rubber tip at the end that has been installed.
It stands a approximately 33inches.
Here are two that haven't had the silver started on them, but that have been cut down and turned into a rough shape. Those odd ends are to for putting it on the lathe.
It's hard to imagine that something like that comes from something like this rough manzanita block.
