Decided to make a mallet for the shop. Found several tutorials, video’s and posts on LJ to help guide me along. Material is English walnut and Walnut. The center was hollowed and filled with BBs. The head is 3X3X5” affixed to a 14” handle. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to let me know.

Nice mallet. I like the Eng. walnut there.

Looks great. I made my first mallet years ago using a…ummm…circular saw. It’s useful but not necessarily pretty, or symmetrical for that matter. Time for me to make one the right way.

@woodcox, thank you! I made a beautiful tea candle holder out of the same batch of English walnut. I’ll have to post it as well.

@christherookie, wow. Plenty of ways to accomplish a task. Admittedly, the circular saw wouldn’t have been my go to. But one must adapt and overcome. Don’t be shy, make a new hammer. They are fun builds.
