Introduction: Aborigine War Club (I Did Everything Except for the Woodburning)

This is a small project I've been working on for the past few weeks. It's a hardwood Aborigine (native Australian) war club. It's very tough, I made it out of teak hardwood because that's all I have (well, that and pine, but we all know pine sucks like hell for making weapons). It's not that hard when you have the right power tools, what I did was I basically cut out the shape (I made the handle a little thicker), sand it like crazy with a belt sander, and fill in some parts with wood filler.

I DID NOT do the woodburning, mainly because I don't have a burn tool (even if I do have one, I've never tried my hand at woodburning) so I let some random woodworker do it for me. He also sanded the whole thing to perfection, so yeah, some credit goes to that guy.

I'm pretty proud of the whole thing. Please comment and rate!

    when you say woodburning do u mean sticking it into a flame to blacken and toughen the wood? cause u dont need a tool if u can just stick it in a firepit or fireplace.
