Spotted Gum - 300mm long (12 - 13mm across the face)

Spotted Gum is the preferred timber for the handles of hammers, axes, sledge hammers, wood-splitters and other tools.

These sticks are sold in packs of 12 for $30.00 inc GST

Plus Post at cost. (around $7.70 in AU)
Please contact me by phone or email to arrange payment and delivery.

The Janka hardness number is the standard to compare hardness of different timber species.
Spotted Gum is 11.0, Jarrah is 8.0, American oak is 6, Vic Ash is 4.5

I've made a video of how I wrap the sticks. The scriber I'm using is an old round needle file.
