I needed a good, heavy mallet, but I didn’t wanna make something too pretty to use, so I made these out of an old oak 4×4’s. I wasn’t sure if it was wise to use a knot in a mallet, but I wanted to get those quarter sawn patterns on top. Anyway, I don’t think Thor could break that white oak.

Nice work!

I just made one and kept the knot as well. Having watched a videos about it somewhere the guy said the knot is where the tree worked the hardest and so is the strongest. Strong is good!

I love the look of these mallets! knots and nail holes give them character.

Have your say...
