Idea came from Stevin Marin – “Woodworking For Mere Mortals”
Mallets made from laminated ¾ Oak and Bloodwood inlays, finish with homemade Linseed oil and Tung oil blend. Each end of the mallet was hollowed out with 1 ¼ Forstner bitt and cast lead ingots used for weights.

Perfect timing. You hit my latest hot spot. Steve marin with just released a video on how to construct a mallet very similar to this. He got it from somewhere but anyway I really want to build one now! Nice job. Thnx for sharing!

These are really beautifull. The inlay makes them really elegant.

I think I am alo putting these on my list. Its something I need. Especially after this weekend when I absent mindedly tried to set a rare earth magnet in its hole with a regular steel hammer. Doh!

They turned out realy nice. I just came up from the shop after putting the finish on that I made. I also got the idea to make one from Woodworking For Mere Mortals.My mallet does not look as nice as yours because I dident do any sort of inlay. To any one who has not made one yet there not that hard to make and a lot of fun I spent close to 4 hours on mine.

I love the way the inlay and wedges came out on the through joint on the head.

Have your say...
