A couple of weeks back I posted a project regarding some mallets I had made. However, I never thought my dad wanted one; he’s always been of the school that if it doesn’t fit get a bigger…. well you know how that ends.
I just finished this one as a surprise gift for him. The head is a laminated block of Hard Maple & Jatoba with a Rosewood handle. I had been saving that piece of Rosewood for something special because of the interesting lines created with the Sap wood and Heart wood, I guess this was that something special. This is my second generation of mallets and it sure went together a lot more smoothly than the last.
I guess experience is a good teacher after all…
Head: 5” long x 4” high x 3” thick
Handle: 12” long x 1 1/4” wide
