Dartmouth Society Canes

"Some of the graduates will carry canes carved with a Griffin, Sphinx, Phoenix or other symbol on Sunday as they march in Commencement. These are more than stylish accessories. The canes are the only public display of the student's membership in a senior society, traditional, often secret student organizations dedicated to "encouraging excellence among members and loyal service to Dartmouth," to quote one description from the early 20th century." from "What's the Story With the Canes", Bill Platt, http://www.dartmouth.edu/~commence/facts/canes.html.

These are a few of the canes carried in the 2016 and 2017 commencement ceremonies.

    Jim did an incredible job on the 'beer mug keg tap'. Excellent craftsmanship. He was very friendly, took my phone call and discussed the various possibilities of designs. I highly recommend Jim for any project.
