To start off I’d like to thank all of those of you who contributed pictures & tutorials of wooden mallets. They have been a great source of inspiration & direction.
For several years I’ve wanted to make some wooden mallets & I need several for leatherwork for the Boy Scouts.
These three mallets were my first attempt & include;
1 Mahogany handle with mahogany & poplar head
2 Alder head with mahogany handle
3 An old Christmas tree head with mahogany handle
I had to shim the alder & Christmas tree mallets as my chisel job of the head wasn’t very clean.
Used a rasp & sandpaper to clean up & shape the handles. Finished them each with boiled linseed oil.
