Couldn't help myself...made another cane

I couldn't help myself I kept moving this little piece of figured Walnut around and every time I picked it up thinking it would make a nice cane handle, so I wore myself down until I gave in and made another. I already made my folks 2 and have no idea what I'm gonna do with it. But I was right, it makes a nice handle. Its hard to make out in the pics but in the second one there is a grain pattern that works as a spear point aiming straight at the handle. My pictures don't really do it justice.

Between turning pens and canes I don't know when I'm ever gonna try out my new bowl gouges I got for Christmas.

beautiful

You can never have too much pepperoni on your pizza or own too many clamps.

Yeah that would work but...what about the other two?

I sure would hate to have them tickle your hands too much though.

You do some really nice work with those canes! Did you use the bigger dowel on this one?

Yes I did John. I used a 1/2" x 4" dowel. The shaft and handle joint have a 1" diameter, so I thought I could squeeze a 1/2" dia dowel in there. Drill 2" into the shaft & handle. It is very solid.
