    Walking Cane Stand

    Hello,
    I'm new to Family Woodworking and woodworking in general, but I'm having a blast so far!

    Any way this is my first real project. From concept through design, build, and finish. I will say the design went through several modifications during the build, because it "Just didn't look right". I'm pretty happy with the final result though.

    This is made from a $10.00 piece of "white wood" from a big box store. I was going to make another one out of oak if this turned out all right, but my wife liked this one and said it was just what she wanted. So we'll see how well it holds up.
