This is a gavel and coffin(box) that i recently made for the Chef de Chemin de Fer Barry Bovee (Pronounced Chef dee Sha Mon dee Fur) of the Forty et Eight Society. He is like the president of the United States, and all other countries involved. The box carcass is made of walnut with 1/8” maple surrounding trim, the top of the box is a special piece of walnut crotch wood that has been waiting in the shop for years for this special project. The inside and outside bottom of the box is lined with pigskin leather. There are supports to keep the gavel and slapper disk in place in side the box, and everything is self contained. The gavel itself is segmented, and made up of 112 individual pieces of walnut, Bubinga and curly Maple. The slapper disk is made from solid end grain Honey Locust.
