Boomerang Dave's Hardwood Boomerangs



I have been making hardwood boomerangs using lapped construction since 1996 and have not only sold quite a few, but have won awards in craftsmanship contests with some. Unfortunately sales for these boomerangs have been down. The production of them requires lots of extra work and each one of these becomes a one of a kind boomerang. That makes these boomerangs more expensive than plywood or plastic ones, and many people are not willing to pay that extra cost. I continue to make these, if only for my own enjoyment. I have recently had more time available and decided to set myself to making more of thse fine boomerangs for sale. The inventry will change as new boomerangs are made and some are sold. The ones below are ones I currently have available and are one of a kind. Clicking on the small image will take you to a larger one.

A word of caution, although these boomerangs are meant to be used, the amount of time put into them and the materials used warrant a little common sense. One of my customers once commented that using one of these was like throwing fine furniture. I do not recommend these as a starter boomerang. There is usually a certain amount of learning curve associated with throwing a boomerang. I would not want to see you, the customer, bang up a particularly nice boomerang during that process. I suggest trying one of our plywood models first.

Here is an unusual boomerang made from ebony. It is heavier than most boomerangs and requires more power to throw. I have added inlay dots of abalone shell for decoration.It is a beautiful boomerangs. It is priced at $60 USD.

This is another special boomerang made from South American Rosewood. It is also heavier than most boomerangs and requires more power to throw. I have added inlay dots of Mother of Pearl for decoration. It is a beautiful boomerangs. It is priced at $60 USD. Sorry this one is SOLD!

This is a lapjoint made from Red Oak. I will be using a bunch of it in the near future but usually mixed with another wood. I think this one came out rather nice looking. Price is $25

This boomerang is a smaller vee shaped boomerang made from Maple. It is faily easy to throw. Price is $25

This is a hook shape boomerang made from Cherry. It is fairly light and not difficult to throw. Price is $25

This boomeraang is a shape designed by my son, Vince. He calls it the Swallowtail. It is made in Maple and Cherry. It is light and easy to throw. Price is $25

This is a really pretty boomerang featuring Curly Maple on the wings and Makore at the elbow. This is the first time I tried a boomerang like this and I am really pleased with how it came out. Price is $35

This is a rather unusual shaped boomerang known as the Malmberg Hook. It is named after the person who first developed it, Fred Malmberg. As do several other boomerangs this boomerang features vertical lap joint, also utilized by Fred. The boomerang is made from walnut and though it is hard to see in the photo, the left wing has a lot of nice figure. Sorry, sold!
