A Maul Style gavel for a friend of mine who is becoming Worshipful Master of his lodge, His Fathers Gavel (who will be senior warden) will be put up tomorrow. the head is turned from a nice piece of Ash with some pretty spalting and the handle is a chuck of natural shed elk antler. the finish is about 10 layers of lacquer.
Shot 5 shows both gavels
