This exhibition quality cane will be handmade from scratch for you! The pictured piece features what many wood workers consider the most beautiful burl wood in the world, Amboyna from S.E. Asia. The cane is made almost completely from this very rare wood, with the exception of the elegant brass hardware. The example shown is made in 4 pieces that join together. We can make it exactly as shown or choose from an infinite number of wood combinations for something truly unique.
Please contact me for an estimate on time-frame, Amboyna Burl is very rare and I order it directly from Asia. Price can vary depending on materials available.

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.
