I made this mallet really for fun, but my other mallet that I made broke in half while making mortises because I believe the glue didn’t bond well to the brazillian cherry wood, so I needed a new mallet. I have some chunks of doug fir 4×4’s left over from my workbench build, so I figured what the heck. It’s through mortised and wedged by hand and the handle is shaped by hand with a spokeshave. Not fancy, but heavy and large and cool to look at. I did this in one night between the hours of 12am and 2am. haha!
