I made this gavel for my boss. He was using a cheep little thing in one of our meetings and it wasn’t working. He asked me if I could make him a bigger one. I dug all of the wood out of my scrap box. The gavel head is maple and walnut. I don’t know what the handle wood is. I found it laying in the street one day. Imagine my surprise when I started working it and saw how beautiful it was. To make the leather uniform looking I glued it to a piese of aluminum flashing then stitched it by hand. Boss man says he gets lots of comments in it.
