Hi,

I recently purchased three Ash mallets from Garrett Wade. The photographs on the site showed these with a beautiful finish however the ones I received are unfinished. The wood was sanded but left in a natural state. They feel somewhat ‘raw’ or rough.
My question is what do you suggest to finish these and make them look as good as they can? I looked at different types of finish however some look very glossy while others leave a sticky feel to the tools.

I have never put a finish on a tool so this is new to me. My question is specifically about mallets but I am interested in how to finish other types of wooden tools. Any advice is welcome.

Thank you.

Have your say...
