This mallet is a great easy project, and it will get a lot of use around the shop. It’s all made out of hardwood, so its very solid. The construction is really simple, I used the biggest washer I had, to give it some weight. The handle I cut out on the bandsaw, and sanded it with a sanding drum in the drill press. Some people use a mortise and tenon to connect the handle to the mallet head, I just left a opening for the handle to slide in. I had a steel rod laying around the shop, so I drilled a hole and in the mallet and shoved it through, so the handle can’t come out. Make sure you use the same board thickness on all of the pieces of the mallet. Hope you enjoyed reading!
