My mallet is a idea that I have been kicking around for some time as I have been having a pain in my right arm and shoulder .
The idea is to reduce the shock feedback from the mallet head to the handle by making a handle with a open section and adding rubber strips between the mallet head and the handle .
The head is held in place by the usual taper joint and two tension screws . I hope this will work as I think but time will tell how this experiment stands up in real use .
Made from oak,mahogony,maple and walnut .
Have been sick the last few weeks and blame the walnut I have been working with on my tooth ache and sinus and ear infection but it seem to be slowly getting cleared up .
