    That is going to make one good looking cane, like it. I am curious, how did you mount the head on the can?

    I have been thinking about it and I am going to cut mail threads on shaft & female threads into the head, epoxy and thread together--------

      Hi JoeB. I use a 6 to 7 inch piece of 5/16th all thread or a large 5/16 hanger bolt and either epoxy or Gorilla glue. I like the hanger bolt the best. I will epoxy in the bolt end of the hanger bolt in place. When it is dry I can screw the handle up and down on the wood screw until I get the fit just right, then epoxy it in place. Had this picture from a class I did a few years ago,

        If you can refrain from gluing it, you can carve and change heads as the mood calls it.

            Looks mighty darn good! What is the diameter of the shaft?
