I have been starting to practice with the lathe so I made myself a small hammer out of scrap wenge and African mahogany. The final product ended up being a little smaller than intended due to a few catches while turning. Dimensions are 9” long, head is 4 1/2” wide, and 2” outer diameter for the wide end. Finished with Watco Danish Oil.

Completed 11-2010

I like it.

My first lathe work was good only for BBQ, like fire starter.

Practice make masters . Keep working.

This is so unique. Love it. More like a sculpture then a tool. Very, very nice zombee.

That is a pretty cool looking mallet. Will certainly keep it in mind when I start my lathe up next year.
