I build boomerangs for more than 15 years now. Here you can find a picture gallery which documents the making of a boomerang. If you want to know how to make a boomerang yourself, watch out for my next workshop!

Returning Boomerang #1

This returning boomerang was made from oak wood in 2011. The surface is hardened over fire and the incessions are filled with red ochre mixed with oil.

Returning Boomerang #2

A right handed boomerang made from walnut in 2012.

Returning Boomerang #3

Built around 1999, this boomerangs decoration was obviously inspired by Neil Young s 1996 release Broken Arrow.

Hunting Boomerang #1

Hunting Boomerang #2

A raw piece, but in my opinion one of the most beautiful. Initially planed to be a returning boomerang, it s weight and form designated this one as a non-returner. The lenticular wing profile was carved with a knife. The surface never saw sand paper. Obviously.

Returning Boomerang #4

This is my most reliable returner, in use for more than 10 years. Its slim-winged plywood construction allows it to rotate fast and it hardly looses momentum along it s journey.

Returning Boomerang #5

A large plywood boomerang with a neutral profile. It can be thrown by left- and righthanded. The surface gained it s darkness over fire.

Returning Boomerang #6

A right handed boomerang which once was painted. The decoration was removed later.

Hunting Boomerang #3

This right handed hunting boomerang is a very heavy one. The wing s front edges are bent upwards in order to keep it in the air as long as possible.

Hunting Boomerang #4

A light left handed hunting boomerang made from a hazel root. The wood displays a very beautiful pattern as it was not cut straight through. The saw cut through the dark center as well as the lighter margin.

Returning Boomerang #7

A right handed returning boomerang to date remaining unfinished. I am sure that this piece of root will reveal a very beatiful pattern.

Returning Boomerang #8

Another right hander. It s light weight makes it an ideal boomerang for beginners.

Returning Boomerang #9

A small left handed boomerang built in 2000.

Returning Boomerang #10

The oldest one in my collection! It was made of cheap plywood when I was around 15. The many scars testify of it s use and the cheapness of the plywood used to build it.
