Nice mallet. I like the simplicity of the design and the ease of assembly. Would that I were as talented as thee. Personally, however, I prefer making shop mallets on the lathe as I can make them from one piece of wood—a nice big, fat, round head with an integral, round handle.

Cool little hammer, the project brought me back to the 1980’s when I worked for G Le blanc Corp, we use tomake cow hide hammers for our in-house manufacturing of clarinets.

Love it! I’m going to have to make one of those! Love the idea of adding heft to the mallet with lead weights.

This is a nice tutorial. I think I’ll make one soon. Your tenoning jig is simple and seems to work pretty well, so it may prove handy to make one as well. Thanks for posting this.

Nice video as usual, Steve ;’-) I really like the tenoning jig idea. Very timely too. I have been thinking about making a mallet to drive stakes in case of a vampire attack ;-))

I was looking at a dead blow mallet in a Borg the other week. Now you showed me how to make one myself that is even better.
