Walking Cane

Introduction: Walking Cane

About: I prefer to make my own things whenever possible.

I used a pond pine tree

Step 1: Find Branch

Find nice branch. Look around 10 o'clock in the picture, that's the branch I cut.

Step 2: Straight Body

If the branch is not straight use this method. I clamped the curved branch to my fence for a couple of days. Once dried, the branch was straight. The picture is a sample of the method I used and not the branch used for the cane.

Step 3: Measure

Cut the branch according to your height. Stand straight and measure the distance from your wrist to the floor.

Step 4: Assemble

Save about 6 inches for the handle. Cut a small hole about 1/4 the depth of the handle to insert the body of the cane. Drill a small hole through the handle into the body. Glue and screw the handle to the body. Wait 24 hrs to dry.

Step 5: Finish

Lightly sand your cane, add a rubber foot and it's ready to go.
