Maple Mallet

This is the mallet I made for chiseling or whatever else I need to whack. I shaped the handle on a bandsaw and router and it is the most comfortable handle I have ever held. Made from Hard Maple. As you might be able to tell from the picture I have already been using it for a while.

Looks rock solid! And the handle does look comfortable! Also, smart to angle the faces.

Nice mallet! Did you put any kind of finish on it, or is it just bare?

Nice mallet. It’s good to have a project that can be used to hit things with.

Great mallet Blake, i make a bunch of mallets but they never seem to come as nice. I may post a cherry and oak mallet that I use and abuse.
