My first mallet on the Treadle lathe made from a piece of firewood. I finished it off with a piece of leather hand-sewn around the hitting surface. It was inspired by my Wood is Good Mallets. The winner of the mallet was announced today.

If you are interested in seeing the build on video, I will post a link below.
