I hade some scrap wood laying around, so I decided to make a small mallet. The problem is that I messed up and made it too nice to use for its natural purpose, haha. The head is made of Zebrawood and wenge and measures 3 1/4” in length. The handle is made of walnut and measures 6 3/4” in length. Both parts were turned on a lathe and are friction–fit together. I will most likely only use this mallet for very light applications and make another one that I can beat up as much as I want.

Thanks for taking a look,

I like it! If anyone in your neighborhood loses a pear or dogwood tree, keep in mind they make great mallet heads, rolling pins, etc… The first one I made from pear was too nice to use and now a couple of years later, it’s still unmarked. Not that it hasn’t been used, it’s just to hard to dent.

Yeah, as soon as I saw the “title” and pics I thought….what a piece of trash! LOL

Seriously…...this is a magnificent mallet. Very nice job.
