Been wanting to try one of these for a while. I had a piece of 2" x 12" oak lying around so i decided to try it. Here is the step by step.


Sketched out the Club and rough cut it out with the band saw.



here it is after some shaping.


more to come.

Got it shaped the way I want it, and got the checking drawn out.



Started the checking with my 1/4" Parting tool




More to come....

Looking good, man.
I'm a club collector and that one will be a winner.

Excellent work! I am so glad to see someone else doing a war club! The Sali is one of the quintessential Fijian clubs...and looks dandy on a tiki bar wall, too.

Moon, It's a chisel shaped like a "V". Here is a link to a Pic.

T. Mecula- It's neat to see your project transform and take shape. That is going to be really cool when your finished with it. Oak!...that will knock a monster dead on his knees. Thanks for postin' the step by steps, it will be interesting to watch this progress.

That oak will cause a lot of pain and discomfort. You going to test it on anyone/- any~THING? I meant any~THING~.

Mahalo for sharing.

Here it is all finished up! I used a dark walnut stain.




Pablus, BK, Chongolio, ManoKoa and Moondance, Thanks for the kind words.

Chongolio, ManoKoa, I would not want to be hit with this thing. It's Heavy and if used right would probably be death with one blow. (SCARY!)

Next up a Kini Kini Club, gonna make this one out of Cherry.

Nice looking club! Many of those clubs are ingenious in all their primitivity and simplicity, especially Fijian ones, as they devoted the majority of their artistic energy to warfare. The sali makes use of one of the oldest principles in physics/engineering- The fulcrum. I alwats liked the Sali...very graceful, beautiful club.
