It’s not the prettiest mallet, but its the best mallet I’ve made!

It is from walnut and maple. I botched the wedges a bit, but recovered more or less.

It took longer than I expected. Turns out woodworking requires actual experience and practice, not just watching youtube videos… go figure….

Thanks for looking, Matt

Great looking mallet—I’m sure you’ll get a lot of good use from it!

And you’re right, projects always take longer than you think. I’ve learned to double whatever estimate I make of how long a project will take, and even then, it sometimes takes longer!
