Haven’t listed any projects for a while, so here are a few. The first two are made from Rutland Colorwood, all the colored plys are running the same direction and turn like hardwood.
All of the clubs are around 16 inches long, and the thicknes of the club part is around 1 1/2 thick. The trick is to turn them so that they are balanced and feel ok in your hands. I take mine out of the lathe several times to hold it and feel the balance. It took me a while to get the hang of it.
The last two are from some spacer skids our of White Oak that was between some lumber that was going to be thrown out. They even had some worm holes and stuff going on in them which looked very cool after finishing.
I used black spray paint, with sprayed on conversion varnish, hard, smooth, and balanced. Would not want to get hit with these sticks. If you look at my past projects there are other clubs there.
Want to try out weighting some with lead in the ends, but you have to watch out if you are selling them that some places do not allow the sales of them, I have been told.
Hey, thanks for looking!
