I built these in my woodworking 101 class.
The pushsticks are decadent..made of solid mahogany and finished with danish oil. You can see that I have used it well.
The mallet is an interesting project. The head is made by laminating three identical pieces. However the middle piece is cut up to remove the space for the handle. Walnut dowels hold the head together. I detailed the handle with a chamfer bit. The weight of the mallet is about right. The angles are not perfect but it is good for chisel work.
The breadboard ends for my Greene and Greene Coffee Table came from the same board as these.
Also shown.. a homemade sanding block.
