This was one of my diversions while doing the cradle. I used some of the scrap oak and it turned out to be a nice light mallet that works well with my smaller chisels. Finished with some leather salvaged from a cheap clothing find at the local charity store and a couple of turkshead knots to finish it off.

Napoleon – as usual my inspiration is from the ‘net and I adapted an article on leathering oars to the handle. I’m no leatherworker either as my stitching attests.

Good luck! Love to see the finished axe!
