A co-worker of mine is the head of the local, “ToastMasters” and began a group at work. Knowing that I am a woodworker, he asked if I would donate a gavel for use in their meetings. I told him that I would be glad to and asked him if he had a specific style or size that he wanted. He had no idea, so this is what I came up with on my lathe. I turned the handle first and that might have been a mistake because I could have made it thicker, which would have matched the head somewhat better. The design is just something out of my head since I couldn’t readily find a set of plans, even though I know I have a couple lurking around here somewhere. I’m in the process of finishing it with polyurethane. I hope to get it to him before his next meeting. I hope you like it.
