Tyler David and I wanted to make a pair of mallets together so we both went out to our fire piles and got the supplies. I found a piece of White oak with strait grain that would work perfectly.

I took it back to the shop and shaped it all down into the two heads all with hand tools. Then shipped both of them off to Tyler.

He used a pine node for the handle on his mallet and an Apple branch for the handle on mine. then Chartered a flight to Mexico just to pick up some palm frons to wrap the handles. (that is dedication!)

Here is the video of the build for the heads

Here is the video of the build of the handles.
