Hello my name is Michael Townsend and I make STONE HANDLED canes and walking sticks.  I first thought about canes and walking sticks when I hurt my knee working as a handyman. One day while limping around at an craft fair I used a piece of a cardboard tube as a temporary cane. I was surprised at how this light weak cane could help the pain in my knee. I wanted  to do something new so I first experimented with many materials for the walking cane shafts. What could I make my canes out of? I weaved branches, turned shafts and whittled limbs. Of course I settled on wooden cane shafts. The right woods are strong, flexible and have a simple beauty for my canes and walking sticks.



Thank You,

Michael Townsend
