How do you turn an umbrella into a cane? Answered

i want to have an umbrella turned to a cane for a 19th century look.  how do i remove the cloth and wire parts and fill the stick part so that it would look more solid and similar in diameter.  also a mounted figure on the hand part would be nice.. any suggestions guys?

it sounds like all you really want is the handle, in which case i would simply saw it off and remount it on a solid wooden dowel. i would recommend staining and varnishing the dowel for added effect. the last thing to do would be to buy a cane tip from a drugstore to protect wooden floors and add grip.
