A mallet made from scraps. Red oak, no finish. Turned on 3 axis.

And a walnut file handle.

Very nice, it’s hard to figure out how you can turn the head.

Very nice design, did you figure out the correct angle for mallet faces, or just eyeball and turn? I have a
couple of maple tree prunings I may have to try this on. Thank you for sharing. That file handle looks real
nice also.
