I have been working on a Euro style workbench for about the past week and while I was chiseling out a mortise using the side of my 23 oz Wafflehead framing hammer I decided it was high time that I make a nice mallet. The handle is made from hard maple with a black locust interior layer. The head is black locust on the outer layer, white oak on the next and a slim 1/4’’ layer of wormy chestnut in the middle. I finished it with one coat of tung oil and three coats of polyurethane. Feel free to critique!
