Made two of these for Christmas presents, then in the building process decided I wanted one myself. They are made mostly out of reclaimed pallet lumber and some small cutoffs that I had sitting around. Finished with a couple of coats of BLO.
The basic design of the mallets came from ShopNotes #95 Sept. 07. The laminations are thicker in my mallets due to the fact that I don’t have a band saw (yet) for resawing and only resaw on the table saw as a last resort. The mortises were formed after the glue up by drilling the chiseling.
