Simple mallet made from really dense/heavy cherry. The handle is walnut and the wedge is maple. The steel rings are a gift from a friend- Thanks Jim!
I usually don’t put a finish on my shop made tools/jigs but this one is special. A single application of natural Danish oil.

Yeah I can see me loaning that out and coming back with a dent and seeing myself go nuclear! LOL

There is definitely something about hooped mallets that command attention. I credit looney tunes.

That looks like a beast! Well done, Lew!

Beautiful work Lew. Your “older” model looks a bit lonely in the corner of photo 2. ;)

Yup, I agree with everyone else….........that’s just too bad, Lew. It would have made a nice shop tool….....but, you know, you wouldn’t want to scratch those steel rings! ..........and how could you put a dent, or scratch in it. Why you might even stain it with paint, or grease…...........

You might repurpose it, put in on the mantel, save it for your computer desk so you can wipe the smile of that misbehaving piece of electronic arrogance, and give the screen a whack it would remember!

.....if you had young children, I could think of a few Thor-like threating gestures that would immediately whip them into shape.

But don’t lament, it may be a failed project for the purpose, but I am sure you will find a use for it….........(-:
