Cherry, Walnut mallet. Simple tapered handle, just the basics. Good solid block of wood for hitting stuff!

I’ve turned a bunch of mallets over the years, and they tend to splinter, so I wanted something that had end grain as the striking surface, we’ll see how this holds up.

Nice mallet! Cherry and Walnut are one of my favorite wood combos. I just made a nice wooden cross (still have yet to post it) with a mortise and tenon joint which turned out pretty nicely. That being said, you have inspired me to take some of my “scrap” wood and make a mallet myself! God bless!

I suppose you could say you made this with mallet’s aforethought!

Is it just me, or does the handle look a little undersized? Otherwise, nice job!

Well, the head may be bigger than we can tell, making the handle look smaller than actually is. Maybe a nice leather wrap. Thats what I had to do on mine because I made it a little too skinny. Nice mallet though nonetheless.

Thanks, all…

Yes, the head is quite large, 6” long, which makes the handle look small… it’s a 3/4” x 1” with a slight roundover… fits my hand nicely!
