These gavels were turned for retiring committee chairmen in the West Virginia Legislature. The heads are Walnut and Maple. Handles are Cherry. The stands are mostly Walnut with a little oak on one and a Mahogany handle rest for both of them. The cradles are lined with black leather. Gavels are finished with many coats of hand rubbed lacquer, sounding boards and stands are Danish oil. A bass strip will be added around the head in the center citing years served and committee names. Fun projects for sure!
