  1. Maple mallet

    Laminated soft maple,with a poly and beeswax finish.Looks kind of like a bell.Full of dents now;it was only soft maple,not hard maple.
  2. Is this a Mallet? Good Question.

    Well here goes. Another project. (Who says you can't teach an old dog new tricks?) Early this spring I purchased a Jet 1236 Lathe from a friend. He hadn't used it in over 25 years. A bit of cleaning was definitely in order. Besides putting it back together, as it was stored in the upstairs...
  3. The 3 mallet's

    I stumbled across some different mallet's while viewing LumberJocks postings. They looked like they would work better than a block of wood and a steel hammer. Of all the different styles, I thought this would be the most versatile. I made the large one first, and then the 3/4 size and 1/2...
  4. Oak Mallet

    First try at a mallet! I put fish weights in the center
  5. mallets

    Several years ago, I turned a mallet out of mora (third from right). I enjoyed the mallet so much I decided to make a couple others of various sizes as well as some cabinet makers mallets. The cabinet makers mallets are made with bloodwood handles and heads made of ash. The carvers mallets...
  6. Brass Mallet / Carvers mallet (Journeyman) mafe versions

    Brass Mallet / Carvers mallet, MaFe versions Three sizes of DIY Journeyman mallets Intro: I have for a long time had a sweet eye to the little Journeyman brass mallets, so one day where I was at the local scrap iron place I bought a 12 kilo rod of brass (the same price as one mallet). Next...
  7. Spindle Mallets

    When I was making my first mallet I didn't know what I was going to do for the handle. I looked around and saw a spindle/baluster on the shelf. It didn't work because it was rotted, but it sparked an idea: why not use spindles/balusters for the whole mallet. Next time I was at Habitat for...
  8. My Wooden Mallet

    Wooden mallet from oak with walnut mallets.
  9. Cedar Mallet of DOOM

    Made this using part of an old downed cedar tree. The wood was already rock hard, and after using a poly coat and this protective sealant thing (by Valspar I believe the brand is?) the thing feels like it could stop a dang bullet. I was amazed how the red really came out! It's like the thing...
  10. Crazy carver's mallet

    A couple of years ago I glued up a bunch of scraps, couldn't think of a project for it, and stored it in my shop. When I decided to make a carver's mallet I realized that all the woods I used are pretty hard and heavy so this blank finally came in handy. It is made up of purple heart, maple...
  11. Maple Mallet

    I needed a new mallet as the one I purchased long ago at a yard sale has been decimated by the mortises I am chopping to build my new workbench. Drawing on some inspiration from lysdexic, swirt, and PurpLev I set out to make one from some maple I had around the shop. Overall dimensions of the...
  12. Mahogany roof deck and privacy screen

    This was an interesting build. My client had already purchased the screens, which are thin sheet steel, laser cut, 6' x 3'. My task was to design a roof deck and privacy wall using those screens. One early challenge was that the back corner of the existing fence is not 90°. We wanted to give...
  13. Hammer of Thor

    This was a simple project I saw on http://www.woodworkingformeremortals.com/ Every shop needs a good mallet Patrick https://www.facebook.com/dragonflywoodworking
  14. Yup, yet another mallet

    Since I'm starting to feel the need for cutting mortises for my workbench project, and also because it seems to be a mandatory exercise for beginner woodworkers, I've started making myself a mallet this weekend. It's cut from 20mm oak, the head is three layers laminated together, and the handle...
  15. Whacker

    Hi All, I've been using my chisels a little more lately and felt the various hammers weren't quite up to the task. I looked around the web and sketched up something like this. I told my wife "I needed a whacker", she said "don't look too far". One face is flat for chiseling and the other face...
  16. Deadblow mallet

    I built this deadblow mallet with *********************************** for the head, and hickory for the handle, wedged with a little bit of walnut. I followed a plan that I had saved on my computer from a long time ago, from Shop Notes magazine? I can't find the original plan anymore, just the scan I have. The pockets...
  17. Wood Mallet of Maple and Brazilian Cherry

    I decided to make a wood mallet to use with my new Stanley Chisels. Made with Maple and Brazilian Cherry scraps. Hand shaped the handle with a rasp and sandpaper.
  18. Simple Mallet

    This is my first complex woodworking project (albeit simple to most of you). The tool is made from a single piece of 1×4 oak. I don't have a table saw and I didn't want to spend the whole time bent over with my foot on one end of a board running my circular saw. Not fun on the old back...
  19. Jointer's Mallet

    Jointers Mallet made from scrap wood after a project. Simple design with fishing weight inside for some weight. Wood burning traced from an image of the Kintai Bridge in Iwakuni, Japan
  20. Wooden mallet by 11 year old

    My son Jonathan (pic #4) made this mallet for his sister for Christmas. She is a carver and needed a mallet. I made one for myself first while he was watching me make it. I made templates (pic #5) as I went. He cut the pieces on the bend saw. I have a belt sander in a home made holder where he...
