Nice mallet. It reminds me of how much I want a lathe! I’m so jealous!

Nice mallet I have made them out of the woodpile also. I sometimes do a little timber framing and mallets take it pretty rough sometimes they last quite a while sometimes not so long. I find lever wood (hop hornbeam) makes a good one. yours puts my 15 min. need it now mallets to shame.

I love turning osage orange. It’s expensive as all get out in the north east though. What did you finish it with? It looks awesome
