After doing a big/long tile job at the house I needed to get in the shop and have some fun. The boxes are for my wife and daughter. Barzilian cherry for the sides, walnut for the bottoms and keys and lace wood for the top. Finish is tung oil and wax. They came out ok. I learned a lot on how to make boxes.
Mallet started out from putting an edge back on my beater chisel. To try out the edge I ended up with a thru mortise in a piece of scrap walnut. Why not try and make a mallet? The handle is white oak. The head is walnut and babinga. Finish is a couple coats of wipe on poly. Mallet was made with hand tools and boy do I need practice with that. My son like it so its his.
