Nothing special here, scrap walnut and Cherry wood. Needed something to hit the chisels with.

You may think it’s nothing special but it’s a nice looking mallet. Nice job!

Huge Whammer by the looks of it. I think most of your chisels will just dig in, if you threaten to whack them with it.

Very nice mallet…..But…You needed to give more details in the build. Not enough information…and a couple of more pictures would help..!! I like the combo of woods you chose…..Beautiful job…!! I did favorite this one…!!

I actually love 5his mallet, I have 4 mallets but this one is by far the best. It looks heavy but it really isn’t. It gives great feedback and I can tap or whack when I need to. The cherry and walnut are both hard enough to sustain any whacks with little to no scarring. I glued 5he woods together first then followed Paul Sellers example of mortising the mallet head and handle. Paul is a great teacher. Sorry I did not 5ake more pictures. I did use a spoke agave for the handle. Cut the mallet head by hand at 7 degrees. (See Paul’ Sellers video). Then used a chisel to trim all the edges. I used tongue oil as a finish.
