These are the items I sent Pat (LJ Daddy Z) for the mallet swap. A maple carving type mallet, turned from firewood. A persuading mallet with a hard maple head, and cherry handle. Then a bonus try square as well, made from cherry. Didnt get very good pictures before I sent them off. As always the swaps are entertaining to participate in, and see what everyone else comes up with.
