For the swap I sent Mos this “bent” mallet.

Constructed of Red Elm and Black Walnut and glued with TBII and Epoxy.
Both the head and the handle were made using off-center turning on my old ShopSmith 10ER. Each piece required 3 “center” points.

Here are a few more I gave as gifts this christmas.

Black Cherry and Black Walnut


Red Elm and White Oak

Black Walnut and Hard Maple

Cute!
I wonder if you could find a way to make these mallets say “OW!” when they hit something kinda like one of those tubes that you turn end for end and it makes a “mooing sound”. Corny but fun because these look almost like an artistic caricature. LOL

I’m not sure why, but when I see it I think of Winnie the Poo.

That’s a good thing.
