This is a mallet I made for my daughter, it is made from oak and a piece of blockboard for a little contrast. I consider this my best mallet to date. I finished it with boiled linseed oil and then added a topcoat or two of 50/50 clear Shellac and denatured alcohol.

The handle shape is a little unique at the pommel because I did not continue two of the chamfers to the very end. I did this so that there would be somewhat of a “swell” to help it stay in her hand when she swings. She dearly wants something to whack with it, her brothers better be careful!

Thank you, AJ! She does enjoy it, she even tries to get me to use it when I need a mallet. Knowing that something of hers is help8ng me out makes her feel good. Children are a real blessing.
