Nice mallets. I had a block mallet similar to that one. It split about a year ago after 25 years of use and mostly miss-use.

Great mallets. I am sure you are going to get a lot of use out of them. I have some very like those. I’ve been thinking of turning a hole in the smaller one and melting some solder into or maybe just fill it with buckshot to give it a little more heft.

You did a fine job on these mallets.
