I finally completed reducing and packing all my canes for tomorrow's swap. I would like to post them all here, but am only going to put one picture here. They are not all the same, but I am including ones similar to this in everyone's package, as well as some 'other' canes to make up the three inches of cane that will be going to each person. I baked a few slices...guess I wasn't all that attentive to how I sliced them and put them in to bake...lol. Some are a little darker on one side. Danged toaster overn.
I wonder if anyone in the greater Phoenix area knows what inspired this cane? I realize it doesn't look a lot like the actual source due to the shifting that took place in my reducing, but the inspiration is architectural and it never fails to intrigue me when I see it.
I would love to be able to make it like it really is supposed to look like, but those who know me realize that I haven't the patience to get all the elements in exactly. As well, I tend to make rather small canes (in comparison to some people) as I don't have use for lots and lots for production purposes.
