I am like the proverbial surfer who spends his life searching for the perfect wave. In my case, I am searching for the perfect clubs to maximize the therapeutic benefits (stress relief and relaxation). My requirements are as follows:
- I must be able to swing the clubs comfortably without interruption for an extended period of time. In my case, this means an upper weight limit of about 1.2 kg.
- The clubs must have a nice swinging action. Slender clubs fit the bill.
- The clubs must not be longer than 70 cm. Long clubs collide with each other when doing double inner or outer mills.
- In order to meet the above 3 requirements, the timber density has to be as high as possible. The eucalyptus and the araucaria have a higher density than the cassia and the mystery tree, so they are the better candidates for making my perfect clubs.
I need to wait a few weeks for the branches to dry out before I cut them into clubs. But I will post my progress.
