Every apprentice has to do his own mallet, so here’s mine.
A neighbor threw away some wood I scavenged. I don’t know the wood’s name, it’s frequently used as lumber, usually called “indo” (for indonesian I assume), it’s hardwood. Second picture is what I started with.
I”m not too pleased with the joinery, had to fill gap with wood dust and glue. Next one will be better.
It takes more than a mallet to become a skilled woodworker, but every step matters :)
