    I’m going to try and sell them I’m making 3 different types and see what happens, I’ve ordered rasps from LN and I have a set of carving chisels as well so we’ll see if the results are better and if I will be able to make them quicker. So far they are taking far too long to make a dollar out of them but then gain so is everything else I make by hand.

    Oh well better than the dole

    I go to a local church which is predominately elderly people. I have made about a dozen of the walking canes and given them to some of the senior fold. They love the design, the weight and the variety. Using scraps fro other projects, I have be able to use red oak, white oak, walnut, ebony, curly maple, and cherry.

    They are a great gift idea.

    That’s a wonderful looking cane. I echo the suggestion to put on a very light coat of shellac on any wood that tends to blotch before staining. A spit coat is about a 1/2# cut. Years ago I learned it from these two hilarious Furniture Guys.

    I have always been under the assumption that glue may seem into the pores if not wiped off. Some say do it others say don’t well who is right and who is wrong.

    Ed, one of the Furniture Guys, was warning about wiping glue from finished surface. They always repaired furniture before refinishing it.
