This is the carving mallet I have been working on this week. It is made from Hard Maple scraps. The scraps are actually mostly left over from the dust collection portal I created for the router table. I did the final shaping and smoothing with a belt sander, mouse sander, and rasps. I am very happy with it and believe that were I a viking it would be good for carving and pillaging. I am not a viking, nor am I a carver, so I imagine I will mostly look at it.
For more silliness about how I built it, you can check out the last weeks worth of posts. It is mostly drivel, but I do explain how I arrived at the name Archie, and I pulled off the rare double pun.
This is the first post and shows what the scraps looked like
