Just a few homebrewed tools. Purpleheart/curly maple mallet, paduak/cocobolo mallet, ash/curly maple mallet (my trust primary mallet), walnut turned mallet, and cocobolo/paduak spoke-shave-styled mini-scraper.

You can never have too many bug squashers! I really like the wood choices for the first two.

Nice work. I like the scraper the best as well – I’ve got a thing for shaves.

Thanks for all the comments, gentlemen. You can see by the scraper’s handles that it’s a well-used tool. The blade is a taken-down saw blade. Not my favoirite use, but I use it often to scrape labels off shop merchandise. Why must they do that?!...slather super-adhesive labels all over less expensive tools. I built the Asian’ish mallet to tap wooden bodied planes but the purpleheart head proved too heavy for the gentle work required. It has been relegated to bug squashing!

Home built—- those are the best kind. Made in the USA, too
I have a mallet for my small lathe that is almost identical shape to your walnut one. I think I had cherry and made it out that…..........Jim
