This was my very first venture into woodworking 2 1/2 years ago. She’s not very pretty to look at, and I’m know there’s been hundreds of mallets on here, way better than this, but I thought I’d put it up to show off cross grain face idea.
It’s crappy big box store oak, with a a pine crossgrain face. I use it for assembly as the endgrain is good for anything that need a good firm knock. The pine face is sacrificial for when you don’t was to damage the project. It’s on it’s 3rd face now, when it gets too beat up I plane it down flat and use it again until it’s too thin then I shave it off and glue on a new one.
