Finally was able to get into the shop and get my first cane started. It sure has a long way to go but its a lot of fun. I’ve only got a spokeshave and a 4-in-hand rasp. I’m sure that it would be much quicker with full size rasps, but the 4-in-hand seams to work just fine. Hopefully I can get the twist started tomorrow.
The wood is out of the mark down bin from the local Woodcraft store. Its bubinga. Hard stuff with some brittle areas. I like the color and the price was right.
Thanks for looking.
