Very nice… looks like lyptus possibly. Very hard and heavy.

A nice carvers mallet. I like the lamination on the maple handle. Can you post a picture of the other end. Does the handle go all the way through. How thick is the laminated wood?

Beautiful mallet. I would hate to hit the first chisel with it though.

Beautiful workmanship! It must be cool to make tools to use – one of these days, I’ll give it a try.

Do you think I can tell my wife that I need a lathe, so I can make a stick to beat my caring tools into submission, so I can make her something :)

It looks like that feels good in the hand, it sure is easy on the eye.
