thanks folks.

A couple more.  My other nice cane, simple wooded ball top and plain shaft.  This one actually has held me up during a short period of limping.


The whole group; the two 'dress' canes and a couple of my own short poles.  No idea what the wood's are, but these two poles have seen me through a good few days worth of hiking.

Nice!  The one on the right looks like it might be birch.  I have a few of them and
I can't tell the difference between yours and mine, but who knows. :)

All very nice, like what you done to the one on the right :tu: I like them with the bark on, love that all natural look.

actually given the horizontal pattern of the bark, birch sounds very plausible.  Cheers Sean. :tu:

could be Cherry. :)  I'd go with if you remember where you harvested it from and what the
stand of the day is in that area?

I'm pretty sure thats cherry. If you can cut into it a small bit, wet the wood, smell and lightly taste it. It should smell like cherry and have a sweet taste. Also there are lots near my house (wild cherry) if I can remember I'll take some comparison shots for you.

Word of advice to anyone using a cane for heavy use. Get a hiking pole.  I bore too much weight on mine, & have ruined my wrist, and thumb.  Switched hands & have been using a hiking pole ever since.  I get asked if I'm blind quite often lol, but its better than the cane was.  I should have just swallowed my pride and used a walker, like I was told, but sometimes we have to screw ourselves to be humbled enough to listen to those wiser.
