Truncheons made out of laminated woods, the first one is red white and blue, the second one is red and black laminated. These clubs are about 15 inches long and would hurt if ever used. Sanded up to 4000 grit, and finished in conversion varnish and hand polished. These look much better that the poor pictures show. Added the last 3 pictures, tried to get a better light on them.

Nice looking turnings. Where did you get the wood from?

They look cool !! but I’m curious, are they actually for whacking people with? Or just for show?

I work for a rifle stock company and that is were I get the wood from. Lots of different colors and mostly free! It is great wood, it comes from Rutland Plywood. All the ply’s run the same direction, and the wood is birch. Excellent grain reveal and finishes very nice. We sell some of the wood on e-bay, but have a ton of it setting around. Trying to see if I can offer it here on this web-site. Who knows? The question about if I use them to wack people with, I hope that I never have to. I modeled it after a policemans billy club made in the 30’s, so it is a bit historic. I have made longer ones, but the weight balance on these smaller ones is much better. This colorwood is heavy and would hurt if you were ever hit with it. I want to do one with a rounder end, and then with some green round pegs sticking out of it, like a war club from long ago. Purple and black with green pegs. Some day it will be on here also…...... Now if I can just find the time…..
