I’ve really been enjoying the work being posted on the site recently and have mostly been caught up looking and dreaming of completing some of your projects.
In between that and life I’ve managed to finish a few little things around the house and in the shop.
here is one of them.
I recently found a skid / pallet that was made of a dark wood. I am not sure of the actual species is but its hard, maybe Walnut or Mahogany. So I made myself this mallet, the face is “layered” with maple and the wedge in the top is cherry.
The cherry is from my father back yard. I only had 2 logs about 10” long each.
One i made my first mallet with. A big ole’ neanderthal looking beast and a small box.
the other i’ve kept close using it sparingly.
No reason i just know when it’s gone it’s gone
Like most of my work soon after completing a project i often see thing far clearer. This occasion was no different, i really should have gone with the Krenov Mallet. It’s what
i wanted i just didn’t know it until i saw it. ( Next Time)
I’ve finished it with some several light coats of BLO.
