I made the mallet out of maple and cherry, some oak on the handle to give it a better feel in the hand. The bench hook is maple and the marking gauge is cherry and maple. All crude but useful.

They look better than some of the tools I have made. But like you say who cares as long as they do the job.

Hand made tools are the best to use. Nice job.
