Here is a cherry mallet that I made for my dads birthday. Overall length is about 14” and the head is 8”x3”. I did everything by hand. The handle is dovetailed into the head so it can’t come out. The head is kind of octogonal and was made that way using a hand plane. The handle was cut out with a coping saw and then further shaped using a rasp. Everything was hand sanded and then got a BLO finish. The last picture is what I am using for a mallet….think it might be getting replaced next week and my dad gets his.
