This is the Mallet that I made for the first ever lumberjocks mallet swap 2012
it was made for ScottyB and is made of Purpleheart for the head and white oak for the handle.
the purpleheart was very hard on the tools to turn, first time I have ever tried turning it and had to sharpen the tools about half way in.. the handle is mortised into the head and has a wedge driven in from the inside as the handle was driven home. should provide plenty of whack… hope you enjoy Scotty.. Papa
