    Made a mallet for a friend that works at a distillery. It's for pounding the bungs into the barrels. (Plus, if you are making something simple, and have enough scraps, why not make two?) Made from tight grain oak scraps and copper wedges. Signature Montana quarter. Head is 2 3/4" x 3" x 4...

This is a very versatile bucket; it's light weight, water tight, nice to look at, and you can put just about anything in it. My...
