Here is a pair of mallets I recently made. The first one is based off one made by Steve Ramsey, laminated from oak and maple, and through tenoned and double wedged with a walnut handle. It is really great for driving in dowels and persuading my joints.
The second is made from a shaft of maple, which I later glued some oak around. Simply turned on a friends lathe, it is a fantastic mallet for chopping dovetails, although mine could still use a lot of work ;). Both mallets are finished with tung oil, get daily use. Thanks to lumberjocks for inspiring me to make them after the mallet swap!
Thanks for looking – Chris
