I was playing around with the lathe this weekend. I’ve wanted a solid wood mallet for awhile. Saw a couple of articles about it and decided to try my hand at it. Not quite the conventional design, but it works pretty well.

Great looking mallet and you don’t have to worry about breaking the handle. Should get the job done.

That chunky handle should be good, it will give it a little more balance and comfort during use.

It’s suprisingly comfortable to use, althought a little short. The next one will certainly be longer.

That’s not a lathe, that’s a scrollsaw. But nice job on the Mallet. :)
