My old mallets from 2013 have croaked due to the constant use/abuse they get in the shop so I made some new ones. Bigger ones. Oven dried ones that are as tough as concrete right now. The smaller carving mallet is about 3 lbs so hopefully it wont split in half like the old one did. I have some more big chunks of wood like this stashed away so that by the time these mallets break they will be seasoned and ready for life in my shop.
In case you folks are wondering why I make so much stuff from black locust I also attached a photo of my current stock of lumber to be. I haven’t even touched that pile yet I have been working from the “reject” pile
