Help with Propeller/Gift question....

    Help with Propeller/Gift question....

    I'll be upfront, I'm graduating from medical residency and my adviser is an avid pilot.  I figured that for a nice advisee gift would be a wooden propeller that he could hang over his desk/mantle etc.  I was going to have it engraved with a nice phrase.  I know nothing of airplanes so....

    Question is:
    Where have you (or anyone you know) had luck finding a good replica propeller that would fit the purpose.  I went to http://www.asimplertime.com/gifts/dept.asp?s_id=0&dept_name=Propellers&dept_id=903&WT.svl=deptnav1

    which look like what I'm looking for, but when I review the specs its a 7ft prop that weighs 8lbs, makes me think that they are "cheap", but I don't know if a prop should weigh that much?  I'm looking at spending <$500 USD, "vintage" wooden prop that an airplane aficionado would put up.

    Regardless, if anyone could point me in a general direction I'd VERY much appreciate it, or if the above is a good store, I'll go with them.

    Thank you in advance for your help!
