The flies have been terrible these past couple of weeks, since I never get around to going to the store and buying a fly swatter I decided to build one out of wood.
The swatter is 23 inches long, the head is 4 inches wide and 5 inches high, with the holes cut out in the shape of flies. I used 1/8 inch birch ply for the project, cut it out in my laser, glued the handle pieces to it, and stained it with a walnut stain.
I was concerned about how it would hold up, but it seems to work well, I have had a couple of hard swats on the workbench and it is holding up fine.
