Scott (lysdexic) and I took a class at the Woodright School on Saturday and made Roy Underhill’s “mystery mallet.” The class was a lot of fun and Roy is great teacher and one of the most animated people you’ll ever meet. With respect to joinery, this was probably the most difficult piece I’ve attempted, but it came out nicely, I think.
Details: the head is walnut and the handle is hickory. I finished it with boiled linseed oil and paste wax.
The last photo is a family portrait of mallets (the one on the right I got from lysdexic from the Mallet Swap last year).
