I made this mallet with some scrap I had lying around, with the intention of using it with chisels. This was a good lesson in using appropriate materials, as the wood I used is not nearly dense nor durable enough to make a quality striking tool. I’ll repeat this design once I come across some better wood, and this will be used only for assembly (or nothing at all).
Finish is two coats tung oil finish, two coats of polysomething, sanding w/ 220 in between.
