The first one: a mallet made out of purpleheart and hard maple.

The second: Some new handles for two rasps of Smoked Oak.

And the third: a baseball batt made out of Hornbean.

All of the projects are finished with a couple of layers Danish Oil.

Greetings!

Those rasps are beautiful! The mallet tenon design is also very cool.

I think I’d end up fondling all of those a lot more than I’d end up using them. Something about the soft curves just makes me want to touch them.

Can you elaborate on the term “smoked oak”? Until I read your comment, I was thinking walnut. Is it anything like faux ebonizing?

Great turning projects. Like the baseball bat most. The mallet is cool with the inlay. The rasps are pretty.

The ebonizing of the European Oak was done by “ammonia” By creating a small housing for the two handles which is filled with a bit of ammonia, you can ebonize the Oak as dark as you want. These handles have been ebonizing for eight hours. The gas of the ammonia react with the acid in the Oak, and will turn dark.
