Nice work Bruce. I have that Shopnotes issue, I will have to resurrect it and build me one too!

Nice mallet. One can never have too many hammers.

Very nice, are the striking surfaces padded with leather?

Yes. The local Tandy leather store has bins of cutoffs for next to nothing. I have enough leather now to make about a dozen of these.
