Son is always stealing my mallet, time for his own. The head is made from a stash of rough cutoffs I found at a garage sale. Couldn’t believe the figure and grain that popped out when I began to plane the block down. He loves to walk around the house and “fix” things now… BTW, This was my first use of my narex mortise chisel. I’ve never used any higher end chisels but I was extremely happy with its performance.

Very nicely done—that head has beautiful grain!

Nice piece of walnut burl for a hammer!! Not sure of the strength of burl as compared to regular straight grain, but it looks really cool!! Bet he’s over the moon with his new hammer!
