Gift Ideas

I couldn't decide where to place some of the things I make, so I made this page for gifts. Don't get me wrong, bowls, boxes, rubber band guns, chess pieces, picture frames, in fact most all of what I make makes fabulous gifts so don't stop here!

Hand-Turned Conductor's Baton

The Conductor's Baton gained widespread use in the early 19th century, as a means to make the movements and direction of the conductor more visible to the orchestra. Light woods and teardrop-shaped handles are customary, with lengths between 10" and 24" most common. Professional conductors often have them custom-made to suit their physical demands and nature of performance.
The baton shown above is with a holly shaft and a purpleheart handle, total length about 15 inches. The shaft should be both light weight and light color. Maple offers a less-expensive alternative to holly. The handle can be any number of woods, from more common woods like walnut, purpleheart, etc. to exotics like rosewood, ebony, or cocobolo. Engraving and pyrography is also available for an additional fee. Email me to discuss specifics.
Price as shown - $60.00. Add a pouch for an additional $10.00
