Made this dead blow for my pa, cherry finished with BLO. Turned on the lathe bored out 1 3/4” hole in the top and filled it 3/4 of the way with steel BB’s and glued a plug in the top making sure to leave enough space for the bb’s to move around making it a dead blow.

That is a pretty neat idea of the BBs. I really like your mallet too.
