My first mallet based on the latest issue of woodcraft magazine’s plan. I got too excited and ended up putting the tenon in the wrong direction. Oh well, it works great. I cut one head at the suggested 5 deg and the other at 2 deg based on some suggestions here. Can’t decide which I like better.
The woods are: Handle – Ash, Head – curly maple sandwiched between bubinga, pin – oak, wedge – wenge.
Thanks all for being a great community.
edit: added a couple pics showing assembly. Tenon is wedged on the top and pinned through the side.
