Handmade Travel Cane In Exotic Woods - Walking Stick, Gift Idea, Wood Art

This exhibition quality cane will be handmade from scratch for you! The pictured piece features one of our unique handle shapes crafted from Irish Bog oak wood. The two shaft segments are made from a rare exotic wood and are intricately turned. This travel cane is packed with visual interest and unique style. When ordering, let us know the cane length and whether you would like the cane to break down into two or three segments for travel compactness (pictured is a two segment cane).

Please note that the materials pictured for this cane are regrettably unavailable and most likely unattainable. Consider this cane as an example of what can be made using any number of different wood species. For example, this style would look outstanding in Ebony or Cocobolo woods.

Please allow approximately 4 weeks for your custom ordered cane to be crafted. Let us know your desired cane height when ordering.


All of our canes and walking sticks are designed and handmade by Shawn Gillis, an artist and woodworker who considers each piece he creates to be his "functional art." We seek out and choose to work with top quality woods from all over the world that are all sustainably harvested. Each cane is designed with durability, comfort, and style in mind so that you can enjoy using your unique piece every day for years to come. Each handle is joined to its shaft with a sturdy metal bolt that provides strength. Our canes are all completed with a glossy finish that provides protection and a smooth feel to the wood.


Here are our instructions for determining your proper cane height:

1. Stand comfortably erect with your hands at your sides, with your shoes on.

2. Have a helper measure the distance from the floor to the bottom of your forearm/top of wrist of whichever hand you wish to hold the cane with. (You may need assistance with the measurement so as to avoid disrupting an ideal posture.)

This method will allow for an ideal amount of bend in your arm. Too much, or too little bend in your arm can cause posture issues and muscle aches.
