This is incredibly dense wood. I am not even sure it’s Cedar, except that it smells like heaven when I cut it.
The color is a warm cinnamon read and these are the heaviest of all the whappers I have made.
Length is 16 inches, the blade is 1 inch wide.
My “Whappers” are an amusing, surprising shape, kind of a double-but-opposing wedge. This gives them a nice balance in the hand and a delightful warm sting. They are narrower than a paddle, wider than a cane, with a nice weight and more gravitas than a paint stirrer.
