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.

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.
