How To Build A Custom Walking Cane

Thinking about building a custom walking cane? Check out this DIY project where I built a walking cane for my dad!

Well, my Dad finally went through with his knee surgery to replace a broken down knee joint. Thank goodness! Before he went into surgery I decided to make a custom walking cane out of some scrap material I had on the lumber cart. I went back and forth on material types but settled on a combination of Walnut and Padauk with an Oak center. I really love the way that it came out….and so does Dad. If you haven’t already, check out the video link below to see how the project came together.
