Theme requirements:
1. Use at least two different woods from two different countries.
2. Include at least one non-wood element in the build.

Ok! So, I’ve decided to make a Small round carving mallet for this challenge. My two woods are Hard Maple and Purpleheart. To fulfill the non-wood requirement, I’m going to run a 1/4” carriage bolt through the center and secure it with a washer and a cap nut to A) add a bit of weight and, B) help ensure that my handle tenon doesn’t dislodge from the mortise I’ll be boring into the head.

Progress posts will be added as progress is made.

No. I’m not calling out a LumberJock’s challenge. That being said, anyone who is interested – having seen The Builder’s Challenge webpage – can join the challenge as well.

I’ll definitely check out this Beer Swap thing
