            Make one out of concrete but make sure it has reo bar in it for strength.... maybe even do one with bar and one without to compare? 🤷‍♂️

                Idea - I recently broke my hand and had a cast put on. The material forms perfectly as it is wrapped and it is amazingly strong. It may be expensive though, I don't know.

                  Cover it with line-x bed liner
                  That's stuff is super strong it can make an egg unbreakable so it should make the wooden driveshaft unbreakable

                            Your guys should try to make a turbocharger and put it on a car and see if it works or if it does how much pounds of boost

                                      Go to a tractor supply and buy a fence post. It’s already round just get one that’s already the right size. Or use a friends wood turner to make your 4x4 round. No run out.

                                                try wood driveshaft but find someone with a lathe to get rid of as much run out and then you may have more success
