Nice, I like the shape of the handle it looks like it will be easy to control.

Thanks. Doubthead, I didn’t take pics of the process. Basically the handle looked like a tail and I just marked the tail onto the two halves and used my Bosch Colt to rout out most of the half mortise and then used a chisel to pare away the rest.

Very cool. I kinda have a thing for mallets. Much more beautiful than anything I’ve made.

Thanks everyone. I just hope that there are plenty of chisel blows in it.

looks really nice, I like the smaller head (compared to other oversized mallets).

this is on my list, and will be one of my next projects – I need to retire my rubber mallet as well… it’s time.
thanks for the post .
