Yup, it’s a mallet.
It’s been forever since I’ve done anything other than work on the house… had to make something, right?
An exercise in hand plane use, really.
Turned from a piece of 2×2 mahogany, 12 degree angle on the face, and planed a bit of an angle into the sides to match. Inlaid a piece of maple cross-grained to the mahogany (which was doing a lot of splitting along the grain, figured it would be a good way to keep the end together!) with the handle going through the head with a wedged tenon.
Finished with three coats of shellac thinned 50/50.
