With a new nice and sharp set of chisels it only makes sense to have a good looking hammer to …. well whack them with! Sounds funny but not just any old hammer would do, only one made of hard maple and bubinga would work for my chisels! It was a very fun and easy project to do, with the help of a buddy! The mortise is hand cut and the pins were turned on my buddys lathe, they are made of purpleheart. Thanks RKW.

That is too nice of hammer to BEAT UP!

My wooden beater is just a dowel handle on about a 2-1/4 ” hardwood branch—cut flat on the ends! About 5 inches long. I actually made a couple of them; and use them all the time.

That is a fine shop built mallet. Congratulations.
