These were a christmas gift for my wife dad and brother. The carpenters mallet was for my dad. Constructed of Walnut and Oak. I laminated the walnut in between the Oak on the handle and sandwiched the oak head with two pieces of walnut that had really good sap contrast in it. Once the glue dried, I hammered in a spline wedge for the head to secure everything. It is great for joint assembly. The sanding block is made from walnut and pecan, I just epoxied the hardware in place. Works great. And lastly, the cutting board was for my wife. It is end grain and consist of walnut, oak, pecan, and cherry. I love it, I use it every day for just about anything. Keep it moistened with butcher block oil and make sure you have rubber feet under it so no water collects under it. Otherwise you might get a cracked block one morning.
