Hi this was my very first wood working project . It is a wood mallet . I copied a design I found on u tube by Steve Ramsey. The head is three pieces of wood glued together with two holes drilled to add lead weights. It is surprisingly heavy. I have been trying my hand at wood working now for a few months and I must say I love my new hobby. I have been in the carpenters union for about 12 years. I do metal stud framing for commercial buildings some drywall and plywood sheeting. Wood working is completely different from what I do for a living and I am really enjoying it.
