A gavel is a ceremonial mallet made from hardwood, with a handle and struck against a sound block. The striking surface typically made of hardwood, to enhance its sounding qualities. It is a symbol of the authority and right to act officially in the capacity of a chair or presiding officer. According to tradition, Vice President of the United States of America John Adams used a gavel to call the very first Senate to order in New York in the spring of 1789. The gavel is used to keep the meeting itself calm and orderly. The sound of the gavel strike serves to sharply define an action in time in a manner clearly and perceivable by all, and to endow the action with practical as well as symbolic finality.
