I made this mopani mallet for fellow Lumberjock and street rapper ScottyB, yo. It’s meant as a plane iron setting mallet and has one lucky striking surface. Thanks for looking.
.
Edit: added some size comparisons. Thanks for looking!

Thanks, Ratchet! I should take a picture with something to scale. It’s smaller than it looks. Hold on, I’ll find something.

Outstanding Al. The contrast of fine furniture/caveman is awesome. Well done man, well done.

Looking good.
Hope you pick up the right one, so we will have no BANG.
Lovely detail on the top, really cool.
Best thoughts,

Thanks, guys:) Mads, the gun was for size comparison; I’d never beat a chisel with a Belgian Browning;)

Tony, I really like that…caveman meets craftsman. I think I’m going to start doing more of that clash. It’s a rewarding thing.
.
Mos for the pun win:)

Man, do I have some kind of ape hand? I posted the size comparison pic and my hand looks weird. What the hell, man? Anyhow, carry on.
