  13. leather cane

    after i get the one end peened to as large as i want about 1/2 inch , got a ways to go. as for the cane tip i'll go with a cane rubber tip over the peened end. want it to grip not slide around. the antique one i found is just the peened end. just want to protect the floor. i've thought i'd chuck it up in a lathe to sand it down , but thought better of it for cheating. want it all by hand the old one i have is probably rusted and that's why its so flexible .i've been kicking this around for years and thought it was time.
