Love it, just love it.. I made my old one out of cherry and Maple, just love the look of those two woods together.
I am still using it, but found that with time the cherry would take a bit of a licking.. not bad, but over time it starts to ding up.. You should get four or five years out of it first though. What are the dimensions of the head, is it a serious whacker or more of a finesse type thud..?? keep up the great work.. Papa
