Canes (and a gloat!)

Scott Greaves in Blackfoot ID
>Because of my Dad, who is 87, and his girlfriend (she doesn't disclose her age!) - I find I have committed to turn a couple of nice walking canes! So my questions is, does anybody have some good suggestions on making canes? Methods and procedures, materials, parts? Any help would be welcome!

And now the gloat part - I knew that my Oneway 1224 would not be long enough to turn a cane, so I got the go-ahead from the boss to order the bed extension for the 1224, and the spindle steady! They shipped out from Oneway this last Tuesday, and I am anxiously awaiting their arrival! Greg Wilson told me I should have just ordered it with the lathe, and now I guess I have to admit he was right! This should be fun!

Scott.
