I made this Jointers Mallet as a gift for my dad just as a random gift. I think they are pretty cool if made correctly and this one turned out ok I thought !

The head is laminated with red oak outsides and a walnut center and I incorporated a piece of leather on each striking end on the head for a softer touch and added protection ensuring not to mar any projects worked on. Also it gave a nice appearance.
Then the handle is shaped from Peruvian walnut.

All in all was a fun project and keep an eye out for future projects!

Good job! The leather is a nice touch. What kind of woodworking does your dad do?

Nicely done I just made one myself the other day.
Went out in the shop and was thinking what should I make today and that’s what came out. LOL

I like days like that … most of my jigs and some of my tools we created on days like that!
