Today I made a set of drum sticks out of bubinga wood for my guitar teacher. They were a lot of fun to build, however, a little tricky due to the fact that they were made on a belt sander flipped upside down. After wood-burning his initials in the end and finishing with Watco oil and shellac, you get a cool, fully functional drum accessory! Thanks for looking!

Good job, Dale! I have a pair of rosewood 3S field drum sticks (turned in Williamsburg, VA) ... been using them since the early 70s. Again, good job!
