Here is another mallet, but this one is for a child – oak head covered on one side with thick leather. The handle is a simple dowel with a decorative leather piece at the bottom.

Since the hole drilled is the same diameter as the handle, I added a dowel near the top to lock in the head. I drilled a hole through the backside of the mallet head & flush cut it off. The dowel has glue on it as well.

I carved out a square in the bark and burned in the Japanese symbol “ki” which means tree/wood.

Gave this to our daughter for Christmas & she loves it.

Nice work.

My younger boy has a thing for mallets, hammers, anything he can wack something with. He did not get a mallet this year, probably not next year either.
