I had some time to kill and a few pieces of different woods so I made some more pendents for the park craft sale.
They are 3/8”x 1 1/4” x 2 5/8” and sanded to shape with an .099” hole across the top for the cord.
The first two are osage orange, then three ironwood ones, theree mesquite ones and the last 2 are smaller ironwood ones the size of the first one a I made a week ago.

There is no finish…they are just buffed and waxed.

....have to keep the elves slackers!

Cheers, Jim

beautiful work Jim. I lean toward the heartwood and sapwood mixed too. Good luck with the sale.

They all came out great I especially like the Osage orange. I was watching a video on mallet making and Paul Sellers said it was the best wood to make one from.

Thank you all for the nice comments! I’m glad so many of you like the one with heart and sap wood. I hope a customer does too!! I was going to throw that piece away because it was at the end of the heartwood. I had just a little of the ironwood.

Hi James, I have made many mallets but never one from Osage Orange. I have a stock of it here so I may make a small one for the shop. When it gets old, it gets super hard. That is what made me buy new gouges!!! I have big osage orange bowl started but could not cut it very well with M2 gouges

Cheers, Jim
