When I first got into woodworking I didn’t have the money to buy a mallet (sad, I know). So I made one out of maple that has served me well. But I always wanted one like this.
Fast forward several years and Popular Woodworking started the buzz on this Mystery Mallet by Roy Underhill. When I got the April 2012 issue of Popular Woodworking, I immediately got to work on the mallet.
The entire thing is made out of Ash – which should help it last a good long time. I stained the head of the mallet with some dark something I had laying around. The entire thing has several coats of tung oil.
The blog is listed here: http://lumberjocks.com/pastorglen/blog/28617 It will give some of what I learned along the way.
Thanks for stopping in and taking a look.
