This is a Derby style cane handle made from Black & White Ebony. The B/W Ebony had a natural crack in it that I filled with fine ebony dust & epoxy, then layered in some silver foil and freshwater pearls to give the natural void an interesting hidden treasure. The natural black veining of the ebony is revealed by each stroke of the file and sandpaper and the blonde wood is ever changing with the jet black veins trying to emerge.

The collar is made of Gaboon Ebony and the shaft is Tiger Maple that I “ebonized” and sanded away to reveal the stripes made from the stain resisting the hard wood and penetrating the soft wood. If I were to do this again, I may use a brown stain along with the black to pull the color of the shaft closer to the color of the handle, but I wanted to show that I used multiple types of woods and techniques in this project.

COMFORT: My concept of form and function demands that the handle be comfortable, stable and stylish. Therefore there are no sharp edges in the way of being a practical walking aid, somewhat limiting my designs, but I want the cane user to be able to use the cane with assurance that they will have a comfortable grip and not be compromised by a design that inhibits this need.

STABILITY: There is an inner dowel that joins the shaft, collar, handle and side dowels that anchor all the pieces should there be shrinkage or expansion of the wood. I use solid hardwoods and custom made pieces are created with consideration of the client’s height, weight and hand size/needs. Many of my clients are over 6 ft. tall and 250 – 350 lbs. so I must make sure the variety of woods used are adequate for their needs and the heftiness of the cane is also designed with this in mind.

STYLE: I believe that the cane user should not be limited to the flimsy and unattractive canes that are most common on the market place and I want the user to be proud to show off my canes and have onlookers be able to admire the beauty of the natural woods just the same. The wood techniques are quite basic, but my wood combinations and designs are yet to be exhausted. I hope you enjoy viewing my work as much as I’m having fun creating them.

Each cane is numbered and signed and accompanied by a Certificate of Registration. The owner can update their registration information and if lost and found, I can contact the owner to retrieve their cane. This is a free service and all information is kept confidential.

My specialty is designing custom, ergonomic canes made to give the user comfort, stability and style, as one should not be subjected to an unsightly medical device just because they need a walking aide.
