A Dear Deer Cane

Ephraim made this cane for his uncle. The hoof is "real" and the wood from a banister spindle.
The hoof was attached using a wood dowel, which is actually metal. The small disc a cross section of antler.
The detailing pattern was created with a wood burning tool.
The trim material is leather cording, attached with epoxy, covering the seam.

From the ground

This turquoise focal point was dug from the ground in the western U.S. by an Apache Indian. He gave the stone to Ephraim, who made this with it.
The turquoise is combined with wood, buffalo bone and more turquoise.
