A buddy of mine was starting a wood working channel on youtube. (gopher woodshop, if you are interested) Prior to publishing a video he sent me copy for preview and suggestions. I kinda teased him a bit about using a hammer for some chisel work instead of a mallet. It was all in jest but for fun i decided to build and send him a mallet. (So he wouldnt have an excuse in future videos, also his wife bought him some super nice veritas chisels, no hammering away on those.) I got to thinking about it and decided i wanted a new mallet too. I also have a couple other buddies who are just getting into wood work and thought these would be nice cheap supportive gifts.

So looking through my scrap i found enough figured walnut, sapele, and birds eye maple to make a few pretty mallets.

Thanks for looking and reading.
