Walnut joiners mallet

Last fall I cut some volunteer walnut trees out of the fence line. I let the season outside for the long Iowa winter, bringing it inside late this spring.

I applied 3 sloppy wet coats of Tung Oil, 0000 steel wool between coats. Now I think it is too pretty to use!

The picture does not show the gaining well at all! It was a lot of fun taking a chuck of tree and creating something beautiful out of it.

Yes, the first blow will be the hardest for me! I did use Tung Oil so any touch ups should be easy.
