>A couple of gavels I made, black walnut. The head is about 2-1/4" x 3-1/4", handle is about 8-1/2" not including threads.
I try to make the entire gavel from one piece of wood for a good match, although the one in the back doesn't look like it in this photo due to the angle of the light. Walnut doesn't thread too cleanly but the threads are hidden.
These are good for bead and cove practice.
