Right now I have about 40 different designs for cane handles sketched out. At this time I only have about 3-4 cut out. I use 1/2" plywood, make a master, then use them for routing out my canes and handles. Right now I have two test canes I use, one pretty rough, and the other fair. As soon as I get another handle cut out and a new cane made, I'll be destroying these two - breaking them to see how much weight it will take to do it. Now just need a way of figuring out how to measure the weight. Here is a picture of my 'good' test cane. The picture is not great, because I had to enlarge it. The 'lozenge' below the handle is so people can have space to put info, or personalize, their cane.

.....Call me a craftsman, artisan, or artistic, and I will accept that. Call me an artist and you will likely get a quite rude comment in return. I am not a @#$%ing artist.
