I made this for my brother-in-law . He was going on about a brass putter that was stolen from him that he really liked. This is made from Cocobolo, Birds Eye Maple, Ebony. Brass and filled with lead to 340 grams.

That’s impressive Bill. Look out, you might have to start dodging orders for more! Feedback from brother-in-law would be interesting. . . Thanks for sharing. Stephen

Vince, you can buy golf club shafts from a number of places online- Golf Works, Golfsmith, to name two.
How did you attach the head to the shaft? Epoxy?

Fantastic looking putter!!!

I don’t know that it would improve my game….
By helping me sink more putts….
However, I’d look good being bad….
And I sure would be the envy of the clubhouse!!!

Sully54 you should try making your own around $50 in parts not counting wood. That beats $300 an when they as where you got it .
