My first attempt at a wooden mallet. The head is red oak and purpleheart, the handle is made from a leftover scrap of treated pine, finished it with BLO. I will be starting on my second tomorrow. I have some maple I’ve been itching to use. Will post it when I’m done.

Nice mallet. Stop now if you build any more it becomes an addiction.

The mallet is very nice. Not sure what BLO is, but the finish looks great.
