When you fist start out woodworking you realize that there is a crap load of stuff you need. It.s a million things that all cost about $30. I needed a mallet and didnt want to pay a lot of money for one. I was looking into making one and I found a picture of a carving mallet from Vietnam (I think). Simple and looks pretty neat.
I made this one out of a piece of Oak firewood. I just roughted it out wiht my machete then flattened the sides with my jointer plane. Smotted out the edges and applied some BLO. Works great and didnt really cost me anything.
I thought this would be good food for thought for you fellow mizers out there.
