Classical Wood Restoration Process

Final Details

Graffiti . . . You may want to leave your cleek mark, sign, or initials on the upper neck. Although we may not have created these classical woods, we've given them new purpose and life.

Perhaps generations from today, long after most metal clubs have been melted and recycled, or have found their way to the land fill... Many of these hand-made, Jewel like instruments, will still be speaking their poetry, and luring the discriminating eye.

I often use a metallic enamel paint pen to mark on the upper hosel. Within this area, the marking can be discretely covered over by the whipping thread.


The image on the left side of fig 29, illustrates the starting tie. To do this; apply a bead of clear fingernail polish around the top of the ferrule where it joins the shaft. Place about 5/8" of the whipping thread, vertically down the back of the ferrule.

Maintain firm tension on the whipping thread but not aggressively so, while looping around the ferrule and over the vertical thread, about 7 rotations.
Trim off the extra vertical thread with nail clipper and continue looping for a few inches down the neck.

Tie off the base of the whipping by placing a separate loop of the thread down the neck. Then whip over the loop about 7 rotations.

Run the whipping thread through the loop. Pull the tie loop upward and below the overlapping loops. Trim the excess thread off with exacto knife.

Finished woods

With the completion of the whipping, the club head restoration is complete. Its best to not play the clubs for at least a few weeks, as the coatings, although dry to the touch, are still in the curing process.
