it is my first time making a break stick but I attempted to do it with a hammar handle made of hickory. I only have this one crappy pic but would love to know if you think it looks like it could get the job done. thanks guys!

I've been told the plastic ones will snap easy and the hammar handles were the way to go lol. I guess either way you lose in a way.

I'm trying to get some better pics right now. Also I used a bench grinder so everything is nice and smooth.

ya was gonna say the same thing , sanding /grinding it down would help with the splinter issue. I have heard lots of people using wooden ones and one of the ADBA guys showed me the ones he made and it was out of wood as well he just used a belt sander? I think he said and sanded it all down was nice and smooth. Good job D :)

It would get the job done in a pinch. :) Get some 80 grit paper and go to work sanding that thing. You can shape it up sanding by hand, just takes a little longer :)

I plan on taking some sand paper to it too once I get home to clean it up nice. I am at my moms where all the tools are so if everybody thinks it looks good then great if not I can fix it.

I am going to shape the point more so it fits in the mouth real good and after I get it shaped just right I plan on putting some grip tape on it. I will post up more pics when I think I have it shaped right.

I would rather use plastic from an old broom. it doesn't need that much to do, but make sure you use the harder plastic ones.
