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.
