I have really needed a wooden mallet, but have been too cheap to buy one. I ran across plans for a mallet in Woodcraft magazine and decided to use some scrap wood laying around the shop to make one.
I used a piece of ash for the handle. and then sandwiched a piece of maple between 2 pieces of koa. I cut the striking face of the mallet head to 3*. I used my random orbital sander to shape the mallet and then I finished the whole thing with a concoction of linseed oil and beeswax.
