Cedar Gavel

About: Hi, I'm stephen, I'm a certified welder, working on my machinists cert, and working part time at a hardware store. Mixing in all of that with my hobbies of blacksmithing and knifemaking, only makes for more...

This is a cedar gavel I made for my county 4-H agent. I turned this using my drill press as a lathe. Visit here to see a write up I did about how to use a drill press like the makers would never want you to (big photo warning).

    Great Gavel, though cedar wouldn't have been my first choice with the softness and all. Still, it looks great, I can't wait to try making one!
