I while back I posted a forum asking help in identifying a type of wood. After input from the LJ’s, I came to the conclusion that is was a wood called Hackberry. Anyway, this stuff is crazy hard – perfect for a mallet. I decided to use it to turn this little chisel mallet as a way to get some skew chisel practice. I did most everything except the coves with the skew. I really like the way this tool turned out (no pun intended). Finish is a burnished super glue finish.
