This is my shop made maple and walnut mallet. I’ve named it the Attitude Adjuster because it weighs in at about 18-20 ounces of pure ill intent. I didn’t have a very good scale, so I may be a it off. Since making this mallet I have used it on nearly every project. I plan to make a smaller version at some point for finer chisel work. For now I’ll just keep a leash of it. Thanks for checking it out!

Nice! Can also serve as a multi-purpose tweaker and alignment tool.

cdaniels – One thing I’ve learned while woodworking is your are never the first at just about anything. It’s cool to know there is another one like mine out there, but not overly shocking. Thanks for commenting!

robscastle – “Green Engineer Trainer”, I’m digging it. Hope you never had to use it all those many times you were tempted! Thanks for commenting!
