this is a simple project since i dont know how to turn wood. i just use my lathe to turn a simple square hickory to a diameter. and drilled and tap it to attach to the mallet head

That’s cool. Did you machine the head?
Is it some odd part of some device?

Looks great! I’d be afraid the grooves would damage the chisel handle though.

Very nice looking mallet! If the grooves really damage the chisels, one ore two wraps of leather will probably be a solution.

Thanks bud,
My other thought was hockey tape like what Rob cosman always say.
Or I could just put it back on the lathe.
Looks sexy so I might just leave it as is and use it as a paper weight ??? LOL
Thanks for kind words.
