OK... Another Mallet

I was inspired by the mallet projects in the past few months and decided to try one out. The head is a left over block of Jatoba from some table legs. The handle is a left over cutout from a banjo neck made of Sapele with a Maple spine. It’s sturdy and stout, and I find myself looking for objects to tap with it. The profile of the handle was copied from a Boy Scout hatchet I’ve been carrying around for years – it’s still a good fit for my grip.

Nice use of left overs. Interesting handle, it looks like it would be very comfortable. I’ll bet it will be very durable and last much longer than some of the “pretty” mallets (mine included).
