The 1$ Mallet

I picked up a block of red oak from my local hardwood dealer. I stop by there pretty much every day to get cutoffs of maple and mahogany for my instrument repair work (my day job is guitar/violin/mandolin repair). I like to pick up the oak cutoffs and such just for that random project.

I don’t have a lathe, so it was a matter of a saw, gouge, knife, axe, and voila.

I have no idea of the weight but it’s quite small. It’ll put some force on something when it needs it. For my luthiery stuff the standard hammer weights are almost always too heavy and this will help make better cuts, plus I just like the look of a round carvers hammer.

It’ll stick around for a while, not sure if I should worry about the little black streak (rot?) but it’s a mallet, it doesn’t matter.

Anyways, thanks for looking!
