The gavel on the left was made from some very old used oak lumber I had scrounged somewhere, not sure where.The handle has quite a bit of burl and some small knots in it.
The center one was kind of hard to turn. The light streaks in it are all basically rotted wood. This was from an oak 4×4 I found in a scrap pile. Most of the board was much worse than this part. I really had to use a light touch to get this one turned without it blowing.
The third one was turned from a hickory limb I got out of the wood pile.
All were turned as a spindle on my HF lathe. Heads are attached with epoxy. Finished with minwax spray lacquer.
