I posted these earlier and was aske to share how I made them. They are very simple and the sky is the limit on patterns and materials you can use. Im sure there are other ways to build them but this is how I do it. They are about 9” long by 2.875” wide. I center the hole..which is 1 1/2” wide, 2” from the top. The angle on the bottom is 41°. This particular one is tigerwood and oak and is finished with a simple tungsten oil rub. I have used all kinds of wood….including actual logs to make these. All the edges are routed with a rounder bit as is the hole. I made this one one day just to use up some of the small cut off pieces in my scrap bin. My 13 year old son is the designer. I hope this makes it clear how easy it is to bang these out. They are a great project to practice skills on. You can also cut them into shapes and they still work. Have fun…give em a go!
