    I don't recall reading anything about these. I have a 5' tall tree branch that my grandchildren brought home, scraped it and polished it with brown shoe polish. I would like to turn it into a walking cane. Has anyone ever done something like this? Where did you find the handle? Do they have handles at the hardware stores?
    How did you attach the handle?
    I have spent a lot of time looking on the computer, at the different types of canes. I will need to trim about 18" off the bottom part but otherwise it is almost straight.
