I was actually (embarrassingly) going to purchase a mallet for myself. I looked at the prices and what I would get and decided against it. I found plans I liked by “Woodworkers Journal.” I had scraps of maple and bubinga – and it was a cold winter in Wisconsin!

You did a beautiful job on this. I really like the woods you used and how they are used. This would look great in any shop! Nice work.

A very handsome mallet, almost too pretty to hit things with!

Very elegant mallet. Like mmh said, they are to nice to use. Fortunately I received one as a gift from LJ buddy Kiefer. I only use it as a tapping mallet and to show off to friends. You did a fine job.

The mallet looks a little too nice… I wouldn’t want to use it for hitting stuff. Great job!

If I had a mallet looked that good I would hang it on the wall in my office.

Beautiful work and a great marriage of the woods.
