I made 2 mallets, smaller one has a head made from Ash, and a handle made from Cherry with Wenge wedges. The larger mallet has a Red Oak head, and Walnut handle. The finish is a couple coats of Danish Oil on both

And here’s the mallet in it’s new home

Nice work Mos… Look to be a couple of great users… Larger of the two appears to be quite the beast next to his little brother… Thanks for sharing.

Thanks again for the mallets Mos! What a great pair. Couldn’t be happier receiving these in the mail as my first LJ swap item, looking forward to putting them to work.

Nice pair Mos. I like the shaping on the handles. The little one looks really comfortable.

Man the big one is a beast. Nice work on the double mortise Mos. The smaller one will be the work horse. Well done.

Nice Mos! I like the simple clean handles.

Beautiful work Mos. I particularly like your wood choices for the smaller of the two.

Thanks guys! The contrasting yet complimentary woods is something I like to incorporate as often as possible. The bigger one is the one I liked more, it felt more comfortable in my hand. Probably good for mortise chopping and holdfasts. The little one was thought of more as carver/plane setting or something I guess
