I’ve recently starting a few woodworking projects, and quickly realized I needed a mallet, so I knocked one together out of scrap 2×4s. Two pieces about 5” long got ripped square, then got faces cut to 5 degree angles, and a groove cut for the handle. A piece of 1.5 inch square cut-off got turned into a handle with the help of a spokeshave. Glue and clamp it together, then sand things clean and hit it with a coat of BLO, and my first project was done.
