Here’s a mallet made of leather sandwiched between paduk with a metal

tube in the center. I turned a maple handle with a tenon and it fit in

the tube quite nicely. I epoxied everything together and turned it

all at the same time so I wouldn’t mess it up and I’m glad it turned

out concentric.

Thanks for handling the swap Terry and it was fun participating
in another LJ mallet swap.

Nice mallet, waho. A solid, no-marking mallet.
