This finely turned pecan gavel and block was created by Doug Dill, master wood crafter in Lanexa, Virginia. Wood for the gavel and block was sourced from the Mount Vernon Pecan Tree circa 1850 which was removed in January 2014. The wood is held in safekeeping on the Mount Vernon estate. The gavel is 12 ½" in length overall. The head of the gavel is 3 ¾" wide and the strike surface is 1 ¾" in diameter. The block is 3 ¼" in diameter. The underside of the block is signed by the artist and marked "Mount Vernon Pecan". A certificate of authenticity signed by the Regent of the Mount Vernon Ladies' Association is also included.
