    Think I'll just make a topper out of it to be on the safe side.

    This is why when doing a cane, I use toppers on handles. Always a concern about that the handle will split off.

    If the grain is running up&down in the 3 inch part (where it will be mounted on the stick), and the 6 inch part will extend out for the handle, then it would be likely to split along that grain when sufficient weight is put on the handle. Might be ok if it is primarily a decorative piece or something for a collector?

    Direction of grain a limitation in this case?

    I have a piece of mahogany given to me by a friend which is about 3" square and 6" long. The grain runs in the short plane. What I would like to do is to carve a hiking stick handle with some sort of animal head at the top. Is the direction of the grain going to be a weakness in the handle?
