Gavel

Gavels which are basically small wooden hammers (or mallets) are traditionally used in courtrooms for getting the attention of the crowd. But I see them more in more in daily use for meetings with larger groups. They are more useful than a loud whistle or a clap of the hands.

You can make gavels out of most any wood including some of the fancy exotic woods like cocobolo which would be more traditional.
