I needed a chisel mallet. This one was inspired from an article on www.wkfinetools.com. Everything here is recycled wood.
Mallet head is Maple.
The handle is from a broken pallet that arrived from Central America. I originally thought the wood was Ipe. After turning, I am pretty sure it is Mahogany.
Drillled 7/8” through hole in head blank. Turned a tight fitting tennon on the handle.
Thanks for looking,
