While strolling last Saturday among the shops alluded to in the last post, I used this cane which I had just completed the day before. I was gratified to find that people actually noticed it. No fewer than five complete strangers approached me and remarked about it.
Here is a closer view of the handle.
The cane is made from pile of scraps that accumulated on the workbench--pine, oak, maple, walnut, cedar, aspen, and mahagony. I'm sure glad I don't throw anything out.
