"Approximately 3 years before the pandemic, the idea came from a friend at the pesantren (Islamic boarding school). I saw him enjoying cutting wood, so I became interested and bought carving tools to carve wood. Then I tried and it turns out I can make canes," said Unang Bagito.

"Currently, I have made around 20 canes. I don't sell them, I just keep them as a collection. Sometimes I bring them along and if someone is interested, they can buy them, whatever price they want to give," Unang continued.

"All my cane collections have rings as decorations on the hollowed-out cane as sweeteners to at least add grandeur to the cane. (The idea) came to my mind, oh there's a hole, let me patch it with a gemstone ring," he continued.
