Here is a fun and easy project for ya! An authentic, one of a kind, super special and rare…mallet. If you haven’t yet check out www.woodworkingformeremortals.com. Steve Ramsey’s mallet video inspired me to hit my scrap bin and pull out this project.
It’s made of purple heart, red oak, and walnut. It’s filled with a lead weight/sand mix to give it a “dead blow” effect. I designed mine a little different from his, but the concept was there. The handle is attached with a glued multiple-wedged tenon. The faces have an angle on them with one being covered with leather.
If you’re looking for a fun afternoon project I highly recommend giving one of these a try!
