Project Information

Thanks to-Paul, Tennessee loading up his project. lumberjocks.com/projects/95969 I thought I would give it a shot. For my first one I think it turned out OK. My Dad really liked it. But Paul's project really nailed it.
I was able to find some nice looking older clubs at my local Deseret Industries. I decided to do all 1 woods with a putter in the middle. I polished up the putter but left the others as found. Not that its hard but I routed my first key hole's to hang it by.
My board kind of ended up looking like a profile of a duck. Probably should have painted a "green" on it but…
It was fun to make and He like the gift!
I will post a picture when I take one of how I used one of the shafts from the club. Made a great addition to my small lathe.

Thanks for sharing Paul and being the inspiration of my Dad's gift!!!

Hey Buddy….......

I love this.

I love this kind of stuff.

Personal Stuff…...........but made with such expertise and skill and turns out just beautiful

Never been a golfer, but I can see the attraction.

I have stored away some of my "horse" grandfather's tack….....the hames off of his draft horse rigging, and even have HIS Dad's horse-collar that is small-ish and was undoubtedly used on a fast walking or even possibly a "pacing" horse" (they really cover a lot of ground in a short while…......the "into town" horse).

Had that one dated and the expert knew about when it was made by the stuffing used inside. Middle to late 1800's.

I digress.

I want to do the same thing….........kinda….........that you did.

Display something of real interest, but I do not want the shadow-boy style.

For one thing, theses are not small pieces, none of them…......so…...........I keep thinking how best to show these off.

It would take most of a typical wall to hang them all, so I really am stumped.

But…................ again, really like what you did, ..........and maybe a little of why I like it so much.

Best…...........Bruce.

P.S. Would love to get together with you and Bert and
? sometime
?

Thanks for the kind words. It is fun to make stuff for family. I remember being young and making things for my Mom & Dad in school. And now my kids do it for my wife and I. For a long time I got out of the habit of making stuff. But I am trying to do it all the time now! Still need to load my Mom's B-Day gift from this year.
I to would like to put a voice (face) to the projects I see from you Utah guys. We do need to meet!

I've been collecting old clubs for years with the idea of making coat racks. Great to see one made. Nice work.
Cheers
