I had some small pieces of very old cherry given to me by another woodworker, who was retiring and moving away.
The cherry has a very deep color and seems to be harder than most cherry I usually see in my area, West Tennessee. I also cannot throw away scraps of curly maple, so I thought I would make a small mallet to adjust chisels. Turning only one end and allowing the other to remain, it came out looking sort of natural to me. It’s fun to use and works ok, since I drilled one end and inlaid a Pex brass fitting to make a striking surface. The pex raised the cost to more than 68 cents. Mainly it was fun to make…thanks for looking.
