If any of you out there are like me you just cannot throw out hardwood scraps. I had a collection of newel post cutoffs I didn’t know what to do with so I made a bunch of wooden mallet heads. I cut the head shape, drilled out the hole and then cleaned it out with a chisel. The handle is scrap maple. The hole in the mallet head is tapered so that the handle drops in from the top and friction fits in. Thought I would throw the idea out there for and of you needing to make simple Christmas gifts for fellow wood workers. It has become an essential tool in my tool bag.
