I’m in full on mallet mood lately. I need help.
Sometimes I just feel like giving something a little whack. Brass head, 3/4” x 1 and 3/4 ”, walnut handle. I’m liking these handles that go from round at one end to flat at the other.
I made up a jig to drill the head, out of a lumber scrap. I was a little off with my measurements, so I was way off by the time I put it together. I learned another way to do something wrong. I thought I knew them all by now.
Plan B was to drill the head on the lathe. No measuring, just find the center. I used 4 bits to work my way up to 3/8”.
