This is a mallet I need for my shop shed in Az. It is made from scraps laying around the shop- one was s piece of curved acacia and the other a tapered mesquite cut off. Our lathe is broken in the shop so John Goodwin (http://lumberjocks.com/topics/48105) at Dead Tree Salvage let my use his to turn a few pieces last week.
It has a bit of natural edge because if I got it completely round, it would have been 1 1/2” or less. It finished at 2” with a 10” handle.
It is finished with Danish oil and clear lacquer.
