I’ve always wanted to make a mallet but for one reason or another I just never got to it. When I saw the video Steveinmarin posted on making them I finally decided to do it.
I raided the scrap bin and this is what I came up with (first 3 pictures). It’s made of Oak, Cherry, and Purpleheart with sand for the weight. It feels good and works well.
The only thing better than being in the shop is when my son is in there with me. He’s only 4 but already has a healthy interest in woodworking. He saw the mallet and told me he wanted one too. Of course! The last 3 pictures are his; Oak, Cherry, and Black Walnut.
Thanks to Steve for a great tutorial and giving me and my boy something to work on together!
Thanks for looking.
