Introduction: Cool Meeting Gavel

About: 12v Electronics, Motorcycles, Neon and Dirt

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.
