The seventh and eighth graders have just finished a project making canes with a Lee Valley round tenoner. It is a very simple process. Shape a piece of hardwood round or octagonal using planes and or sanding blocks, use the tenoner mounted in an electric drill to shape 5/8" round tenons on each end. Shape the handle and drill a hole in it with a 5/8" Forstner bit. Glue the handle on one end of the shaft, and put a 5/8" rubber tip on the other. Done! With finished canes at left are Ryan(left) and Caleb.
