I needs something smaller than my current one but heavier.

Made of argentine lignum vitae head and pink ivory handle. The handle was pressure fit and only took a small brass square nail I made to secure it. Could have probably done without it since it took alotta pressure from a vise to set it.

I bored a handle hole and finished the ends first. Then hot glued some waste blocks to turn it with.

It feels like it weighs about 50% more despite being around half the size. Finished with Renaissance wax.

Fits my hand perfectly.

Thanks for looking

I bet that is heavy, lignum vitea is extremely dense and heavy wood, excellent choice for a mallet though. Nice work.

I bought it with this in mind. The pink Ivory is no light weight either.

Thanks.

Thanks fellers, it’s a shame I’m going to beat it to hell and back very shortly.
