My first project of my journey into hand tools only. A simple mallet, mystery pallet wood for the head, and hard maple for the handle. finished with teak oil. 100% by hand from rough to finished. not much but it functions.

Dan – It worked much like walnut, planes flew through it like butter, smelled nutty too.Whatever it is, it was at a price I can afford ….free.

That’s a nice mallet, Wayne. I love shop built tools.
