I just want to say thank you for the beautiful cane you made for me to give my father.  He is 92 and traveled to our house for the first time in many years to spend Christmas.  He’s been using a cane for a couple years – a very serviceable metal cane used by my mother before she died.

I’m attaching a couple pictures of him and the cane. One is me presenting him with it, the other standing with it.  He was absolutely thrilled.  The cane is beautiful.  I wonder if you remember the woods you used.  I know we talked about it on the phone, but I can’t remember what we decided on.

While he was sitting at the airport waiting for the plane to go home, 2 people came up to him.  One just to admire it.  The other with a walking stick also made by you.  So it is a conversation starter.

Happy New Year!

I bought a cane from you several years ago which I use every single day and have traveled around the world with, and which I absolutely love.

I would like to order another cane.  I am wondering about what interesting woods you have in stock right now.  I need something sturdy (my cane bears some of the weight of my body) and I also would like something that is a darker wood.  Do you have any suggestions?

Thank you!

Thank You Carl for fixing my mother’s cane. It looks great. We will continue to send everyone we can to your website so they can pick out a masterpiece of their own.

Hi Carl,

My Mom’s can arrived today and we are thrilled with it.  You did a great job and she loves it 🙂  Thank you so much for working with me to make it perfect for her personality.  She’ll be proud to show it off to her friends 🙂


Hi!  I cannot thank you enough for the beautiful walking stick that I purchased from you in June.  I was away at Bucknell University in training for one week which entailed much walking.  The only way that I got through it was due to my walking stick.  I work in Center City Philadelphia and I cannot tell you how many compliments that I receive.  I always give people your website.    I think now I’m ready for a mahogany stick.

Again, thank you and I will keep in touch.  I hope all is well with you.


Carl, you have made my day.  I was surprised to come home tonight and have my son tell me a package had arrived.  I LOVE IT I LOVE IT I LOVE IT.  It is beautiful.  It is better than I anticipated.  A few months ago if someone told me I would be relying on a cane to ambulate, I would have thought they were crazy.  Well, I am and I do,  but I am doing it in style!  Your work is fantastic.  The boys ( son & hubby) can’t figure out how you did it.  It is superb.  Thank you.  Believe me, I will hand out your cards.  Now that I am the age that I am and so are my friends, we will all be needing these accoutrements to get about – and if you are willing to oblige, I will keep you busy!

It was also considerably less expensive than I anticipated.

Are you interested in making another cane for my friend?  This one is a gift, so I would let you know where to ship it minus the financial details.

Again, thank you for making my life a little brighter.  I can’t wait to show it off.




I received my crutches today and I just must tell you they are absolutely gorgeous! Thank you so much for making them for me. I have been out and about with them today. They are quite comfortable and I have already had many compliments on them.

Your workmanship is amazing!

Kind regards,
