More Handmade Weaving Boat Shuttles

I finally found a great source for hardwood besides oak and poplar not far from me called Hardwood products.  I made the trip on Tuesday and bought some Tiger/curly Maple, Hard Maple, Black Walnut and African Mahogany.  Some 2 inches thick which is perfect for shuttles.  I've made a new 9 inch shuttle out of Oak, Pine and now Black Walnut.  Today I'm planning on making one in Hard Maple.
Here are my new boat shuttles.  I am still working on a boat shuttle for an inkle loom.  It will need to be rather thin with a beating edge.  Might work on this today as well.  Anyway here are my new handmade boat shuttles.
