Default Home made Hot Rods

Hello I made these a while back, thought I might share. They cost around $6++ to make. They turned out okay but I'm gonna make some thicker ones next time. The 2nd picture shows the wooden dowels I used to make them, the rest are the finished product!

Those turned out great! What did you use for the end-caps?

Not too sure what kind of wood this is, i bought them in a bundle from an art shop, no labels or tags or anything, sorry about that. Yeah you should have a go, it's fun and they look quite similar to the real ones!

That's a pretty good job you did there. Do they feel just like the ProMark model? I use these for any dinner-type sets and I love them.

You could probably use a few coats of Plastidip to make a nice end cap as well.
