As the title says, this is my second ever successful turning project, which like my first is a mallet. This one is made of oak and is a bit larger, with the head measuring almost 3-1/4” thick (the first one was just under 2-1/2”). I wiped it with BLO, which is still drying, and I’ll add a few more coats. I like this one much more than my first. The oak is so much brighter looking, and the size just seems a lot more practical for use. I’ll probably make a few more mallets before I get tired of them, probably more decorative than practical. They’re easy to make and it helps me hone my turning skills. And fun too! :)
