Had some scraps kicking around, figured I needed a good mallet and this is what I ended up with.

I added a sketchup of the dimensions. For the wedge, I cut the angles in the maple and they turned out to be to much but it worked out good because I was able to then put the center wedge in to the depth I wanted and then drive 2 more wedges in either side closing the gap.

-- - Jei, Rockford IL - When in doubt, spray it with WD-40 and wrap it with duct tape. The details will attend to themselves.

Great looking mallet, BUT how did you train it to stand up?

My brother was once a jeweler.

As a businessman, though, he failed. He fell in love with his products, and couldn’t bear to part with them.

You really gonna’ hit something with that??? It’s beautiful :-)

Really nice job!

I just glued up a couple pieces of ash last night to start making my own mallet. Too bad it will not look this good!!

I’d be afraid to put any dents or dings in that thing. You should make a mallet stand to put it on and just stare at.
