    Edwood,
    If those are all named after / inspired by former girlfriends... you have to look for girls in different places lol.
    I keep a "Club in the Can" by the door- great equalizer in a non- lethal setting.

    Wolfe, that second club is unbelievably creepy. I'd be more afraid of a man standing at ease with that club than I'd be of a man with a gun pointed at me.

    Inspired by the following thread started by Edwood7,
    http://www.bladeforums.com/forums/sh...w-to-make-one?
    I planned to make a "root maul" once I found a suitable root ball.

    At the beach one day, I started playing caveman with this piece of driftwood, and a lightbulb lit up.



    The thicker end was actually the root ball with some crazy hard end grain from all the roots that wore away. I trimmed both ends, rasped it down, and shaped grips for each hand. While sanding it outside, a neighbor stopped by to borrow a tool and he said, "you made a cudgel".



    I finished it with flax oil (aka linseed) and plan to use it as a mallet for a froe and other woodworking applications. The thicker upper grip works well for one hand, nicely balanced. For two hands I also use the lower grip. I later identified the wood as Pacific Yew, I lucked out because it's known to have a very high hardness. At the rootball, I can't dent the wood with my fingernail.

    I named it "Bam-Bam" since it looks like something from the Flintstones.

    Thanks for hosting the thread Edwood. I'm headed out of town and will not be able to post for several days. I will enjoy all the other post though.

    Yes. The spiked one is cherry with a deer antler spike. The other one is oak.

    I'm currently working on a replacement for the spiked one because I donated it to a local museum for one of their displays.

    These are each hand carved from a single solid piece of wood; the ball is not a separate piece glued or pinned to the handle.

    It takes me about a month to make one.

    Hey pokesalad, it was a fun fast project, had the sawblade edges had the stick ;-) I really would hate to get whacked with it ;-))

    You even managed to scare me with that one Robin. I think your wining the scary prize with the Nemesis.

    Here are 3 of my favorites... The one in the middle is a american shillelagh, it is a flowering dogwood sapling that was pulled up, it had a big root ball. the other 2 are white oak, the one on the left stays outside and is used as a wooden mallet, and weapon (if need be ) .. the last one is a ball head type war club in the works. They all go through my test, they get smashed into trees and beat on the driveway to test their strength before I do too much work on them, they all passed. Sorry no names.
