...is not this one.
But not all projects have to be big, complex, in depth and well planned ones.
Some just need to be done, and this mallet definitely falls into the latter category.
It’s made from Spotted Gum, a dense hardwood. The whole mallet came from the short length of wood which forklifts use to move loads around. It didn’t look too nice previously, but after cutting and sanding I’m pretty happy with the look.
It’s short, with a big heavy head. If I was to make another, I’d do the common sense thing and make the handle a lot longer to help balance the weight out. However I’ve been using it for a number of months and it gives a very satisfying whack to whatever you aim it at.
