I made this gavel for my boss. He was using a cheep little thing in one of our meetings and it wasn’t working. He asked me if I could make him a bigger one. I dug all of the wood out of my scrap box. The gavel head is maple and walnut. I don’t know what the handle wood is. I found it laying in the street one day. Imagine my surprise when I started working it and saw how beautiful it was. To make the leather uniform looking I glued it to a piese of aluminum flashing then stitched it by hand. Boss man says he gets lots of comments in it.

Very nice but it appears that someone is sucking up to the boss????!?
