    Hi Kris , The Oldest Daughter said she Loved it and has a place for it with the other Sticks that she has , about 10 . The youngest Daughter has about the Same. I entered some of my Pieces in our Steam and Craft Show today to hopefully clear out some Space for other Carvings to come .
    Good seeing you ing again , Thanks for your Nice Words . Merle

    Hey Merle, I really like that cane. It will make a nice addition to any stick collection. Its pretty cool looking. You learned some things in the process of getting it all together, from the sounds of it. Im very glad you stayed after it!

    Hi Merle I think it looks neat. I like the artistic flair of the piece. Just think what a totally boring world we would live in if everything HAD to be functional. I rather like eye candy myself!!! and that piece is SWEET!!

    Hi Mark , got a Spot picked out on the Wall for it . Wouldn't want anyone using it for Walking and they get Hurt when it Breaks . Makes a good Piece for Wall Art . Thanks for your Kind Words . Merle

    I understand. What's done is done, even if it winds up as wall art.

    Hi Brian , I could cut it in the Middle and add a Piece their to lengthen it but it would be still a Weak Cane and really not worth the Effort , it's done and I have no Interest in messing with it anymore . I appreciate your Suggestions but for me it's like Beating a Dead Horse . Ha,Ha. Merle

    The guys in the rustic furniture shop here have a process to size up a cane for a custom fit. That implies that walking, the cane length keeps your shoulders level, you aren't bent to the right or left.

    > Stand up in the shoes/boots that you commonly wear.
    > Measure from the floor up to the skin crease on the inside of your wrist.
    > That's the total, overall length of the cane from the top of the topper to the bottom of the peg, whatever you use. They use all Lee Valley parts, work and look good.
    > They got it right. I have 3 of their canes, any one of which is a comfort to walk with and lean on.
    > They cut the tenon at the bottom extra long so they can saw off bits of it to work back to the needed length.
    = = =
    Merle: Any way you can add an extension to the bottom to get a better overall length?

    Those canes make great wall hanging Merle. The fit on those skinny wall that are hard to decorate. I have had a few of them.
