Here are the last three gavels I have to post, for now. These are probably the nicest I have done to date. All are laminated walnut. All of this walnut came from a flooring plant’s kindling or scrap pile. I pass this plant each day after work. Sometimes I hit the jackpot. Most of the time it is oak. I find maple, hickory, and walnut when they run a batch of that. On rare occasion I get stuff that is four to five inches wide and several feet long. Most of the time stuff is only about two inches wide.

Again, these were all turned on my HF lathe. Heads are secured with epoxy. Finish is minwax spray lacquer.
