Heres a mallet I just finished. Made from the pallet in the first pick. The pallet was a mix of oak, pine and maple. You could tell it had been many different pallets pieced back together from broken ones during its life. This was some of the hardest oak I have ever planed in my life. The grains ran ever which a way. Tear out was a constant companion during the build. But, all in all it was fun and I needed a good mallet for my chisels. I covered the faces with some leather I had left over from another project ( cant remember which one ). Used mostly hand tools one this, so that made it even funner, with the exception of the mouse sander. Im very happy with this one. The grains really stand out and add their own character to the mallet. I especially love the maple handle. Dont think the pic done it justice. I have a second one in the works, which is made entirely from the oak from the same pallet. Should have it up tomorrow. Also have some whistles me and my son Elyjah ( who has already posted some of his on here ) have been having fun making. Hope yall like it!
