  • permanently attached handle on baluster cane

    Today I permanently attached the handle today. I use a pipe clamp. and a block that I cut a handle out of. I use this shape handle for most of the canes I make. It is comfortible and I get alot of positve feedback from those that use it. Useing the scrap from cutting out the handle lets me clamp with out scaring to handle and I can get good even pressure when clamping down the handle.

      Ah, you clever boy. I shall attempt to remember that trick with the offcut shape.

        The big job has been sanding off the old finish on the baluster. Still working on that. Just a few small flutes below the carving to go.

              Yes, I will keep this one. I have another oak baluster. I am not sure when I will start on it. I have cut out a walnut handle for it. It is the same general shape but no swirls. It has long flutes down the sides.

                      No Merle it was a elaborate baluster. I think they were machined. I just carver the face and leaves and handle.

                          So beautiful I want it, but can not afford such a nice piece. Work is outstanding and this one top of the line.
