Bacote and hickory mallet. I was tired of trying to avoid scarring from metal or rubber hammers so I decided to whip this together. Total finished length is about 13 inches long. The pads were glued up to resemble a tapered through mortise. The reasoning for this is obvious when you notice the Paduk wedge holding it in. Pretty heavy but very manageable. Sanded to 320, steel wool, then just a BLO finish. I love it, now I can’t tell you the last time I picked up a regular hammer to do any woodworking. Thanks for looking. Also made a matching chisel mallet to match. Pics to follow soon.
