Tire Thumper

I turned a tire thumper this past weekend for a friend. I have received a few request to make fish thumpers as well. This is a great fast project for an angler or truck driver. I would recommend using a nice hardwood, so that it has some weight to it. Or you could put a lead weight in the end and plug it as well. The would I am using came from a salvaged pallet that items from overseas were shipped in on. There is a salvage company in Portland that recycles these and sells off the usable pieces of the pallets.This is another great project for the lathe and a great skill builder for spindle turning.
