I decided those new chisel handles deserved a new mallet.

This is one heavy hitter. Bloodwood and Curly Maple mallet. Curly Maple handle passes through the head and is secured with two Bloodwood wedges. Mounted leather on the faces to protect the chisels and mallet. Plus, a shiney new 2015 penny to note the year made. Finished with two coats of Danish Oil. This beauty is ready to go to work.

Cool mallet, strong, beefy. Nice choice with the Bloodwood. Now go give it a couple whacks for me.
