Wooden Gavel

I’ve decided to take a new direction with my art, so I created this wood gavel. Hope you enjoy it!

Actually, we just set up the donated lathe at Hack Pittsburgh, so this was a quickie project to try it out. It’s actually a metal lathe, so I’m anxious to get some metal stock and try it out!

Thanks to Matt Stultz for providing the sounding block and inspiration to take a nice photo of it!

    I suddenly have the urge to play croquet. It looks nice by the way. If you get some metal stock what do you think you will build?

    Thanks Robin! Hehe, you would need gumballs to play croquet with this thing. My folks are looking for some aluminum stock for us now. I don’t have any grand plans yet, but need to practice technique first anyway. It would be nice to be able to manufacture technical things like axles, pulleys, and screws, but also there are a ton of design possibilities that we haven’t even thought of. First will be to learn how to use the tool properly :-)
