Ok, here’s another great project to make with colored laminated plywood. This is a new color for me. These make great gifts and obviously are not for regulation play. They make great conversation pieces and / or home defense item if you get what I mean.

This tool me about an hour and used mainly a 2” roughing gouge and a bedan to round the ends and part it. Sanded through the grits, then EEE wax and turners finish. Shines up perfectly.

The question is, as a gift, how much should I try to sell them for?

Thanks for looking.
