Introduction: Cool Meeting Gavel

About: Holy cow, celebrating over seven years with this website. Formerly known as RocketScientist2015.

I refinished an old mallet for use as a gavel for my library's Teen Advisory Board meetings.
It had a paper head which I primed with watered down Elmer's, and I sanded the wood handle. I spray painted it red, masked, the sprayed a few coats of black.

    The gavel was already made when I acquired it. I believe it was made of pine.

    pine bruses easily for mine i used either brazillian cherry or mahogomy they are also extremily heavy and bang louder

    That is pretty awesome. I could definetly do that type of paint job with some other things I have around the house. Really cool.

    LOL, believe me, in use it looks bad ass.
