Introduction: Carved Wooden "bat" by Step


This is a hand-carved (from a single piece of tree) club. The design is of a head with a sphere in it's mouth.

I didn't make it, but I know the guy who did, and he doesn't have access to the internet.
10 hours work I am told...

Phone-pictures I'm afraid.

    This is great. I love it. Any idea what wood it is?


    Hi,

      I did know, but can't remember now. I was just a piece of common tree, the colour having been added. Thick bit was trunk, the long bit a branch.
    (The guy is a real craftsman/artist)

    what is the animal head?...
    I can just imagine some-one wielding it and saying.." surrender, lest you too feel the bite... of the (insert animal's name here)!"
    I think it's a jaguar am I right?


    ...surrender, lest you too feel the bite...of the jaguar!

    I don't know, but the old-guy is good with wood.

    It resemble's a Shillelagh more then a bat.


    That is what it essentially was before it was carved, you're quite right there.

    Your "L" is not a capital. This disturbs me.

    keyboards all bust, using 'on screen keyboard' for now
