Mallet or Gavel?

If I were an auctioneer or a judge I guess this would be called a gavel. But, since I am just a happy old woodworker I will call it my first ever mallet. The handle is oak and the barrel is birch with walnut end caps.

Have a great day!!

Thanks everyone for all the kind words. The lathe is really a nice addition to my shop even if it is an old one.

ralbuck, that is the same question my wife asked :)

A very nice mallet it is. If you use it in the shop all the better. If not you can always look at it and say..Yes I made this mallet. Nice work.

Good call! I always think of a gavel as something a judge or other official uses. Us lowly woodworkers use only mallets except when we are calling our woodworking club to order. THEN you can call it a gavel! Either way, it looks very nicely made to me.

Nice job, and certainly more useful as a mallet.
