    Wow.Those are very nice.Used to be a older Gentleman that my family knew that made all kinds of canes and walking sticks.Some were just display works of art,and others were actual working models.
    Good luck.Have fun.Be safe.

    Mein alpenstock made from a Mesquite limb banded at the tip with copper. The little nub is for pushing down fence wire. It's amazingly strong for its slenderness; I've whacked a cow or two with it when they wouldn't moove.

    Mine are typically Cedar or Hickory.
    Osage Orange would make a good one.

    Hmmm Wonder how long it would take to get it dried out. Guess I will be looking up for appropriate sized limb.
    Surely it will be dry enough by spring.
    Nothing is impossible for the person that does not have to do it.

    Lodgepole isn't the strongest wood around. If it were me I would rub some kind of epoxy finish across it when you have it close.

    Guys, take a look at the cane supplies Treeline.com has. I've used their ends for years.
