At this point you should have four canes in varying shades of red. Dark, Medium Dark, Medium Light and Light. Reduce each cane to double it's length and cut in half. From these you will combine two halves to make the following combinations.
med light/med dark
med dark/ dark
dark/dark (you will have to reduce and cut in half again to make this cane)
light/light (you will have to reduce and cut in half again to make this cane)
On the first three canes which I will call "combo canes" I added a tapered stem matching the color of the veins.
