« Part 40: Jewelry display frame using reclaimed base trim Part 41 of Rock-n H Woodshop podcast series Part 42: DIY crosscut sled »

This is my own design of a dead blow mallet. I actually made several of these years ago and decided to thank Steve Ramsey, Jay Bates and John Heisz for their help in sharing my channel with other viewers. This is one of my most favorite projects, for those of you interested the link for the build video is down below.
Thanks for looking….........

Nice video Drew, I am gonna make one too, but can I put my own logo on the hammer? And very nice idea to give your friends a hammer. Cant wait to see them use your hammer on their channel. Great job.

Tim you can absolutely put your logo on it if you make one. It’s your build, do with it what you want. I’m glad you got inspired by it

Thanks a lot Roger, I appreciate the kind words. They did a lot for me so I felt this is the best way I could return the favor!

Drew, what is your mix ratio of tung oil to poly? The finish looked great, did you only apply your finish once? The mallets came out great, keep up the good work, I enjoy the videos.
Regards, Tony

Hey Tony. It is a one to one ratio. I applied three coats with sanding between. Thank you for the comment and question. Glad you liked it.
