This started as a mallet for the swap and turned into 4 somehow.

The mllet with the leather strap has a locust head with a handle of ash and mahogany.

the other 2 heads are birch. The handles are an assortment of cherry, ask and rosewood scraps.

2 1/2 went to 7footer.

They look good Don. I like the contrasting wood on the handles. I also saw the 1/2. :-)

Great looking Mallets. It seems that once you start on a mallet they multiply right in front of you.

Isn’t that just like you to have more than one of just about anything? Really cool mallets. I like the hangers!
