Finally got around to completing the Mallet/Gavel project I purchased from Penn State. Pretty easy project to complete. It is solid Hard Maple. I am going to put together another one to give my friend who is working towards becoming a judge. I got to use my new Carbide turning chisels I purchased off of eBay from Harrison Specialties Not the best looking tool but man they work great. They take a bit of getting used to, I watched the video on their website several times before I was able to turn without catching the edge. Now it is a smooth easy process. They sure make quick work of roughing stock.

I finished it with Walnut Oil & some brush on Poly.

That’s a real nice Gavel.
Do you make a matching Block/Anvil?
I love turning Gavels, they have a nice feel to them.
