Have you had your fill of pirate stuff yet? I had to mention my friend Shipwreck" Shelly Neal, who made the awesome cane you see below. The scull & crossbones design runs all the way through the cane, and is sliced like a jelly roll for use in jewelry or other applications. Reducing the cane size without too much distortion is no easy task. Shelly makes it look easy.
You can see by the grid lines that this cane measured at least 3 1/2 inches across before reducing it's size.
Check out the bracelet she made with some of the smaller slices. Well done Shelly!
