This is a mallet turned from hard volunteer Lilac, seasoned over the winter and turned this spring.
It’s a brute of a mallet, heavier then others I have made. This is denser wood with vivid contrasting colors; golden to white and on to stark black. A very striking piece (pun intended ;-D)!
Finished with 3 coats of Tung Oil, any future touch-ups will be very easy.
Wght: 23.3 oz
Diameter: 3.5 inches (at largest part of head)
Diameter: 3-1/8 (approx) inches (at smallest part of head)
Length: 11.5 inches
