The title says it all. Red oak and walnut, rubbed with BLO. Nice and hefty.

This is my mallet, this is my gun. This is for mashing, this is for fun.
Nice whacker BT!

What do you use it for! What is BLO. I kind of like my finishing hammer!

Eugenie, I’ll use it with chisels for chopping waste out of mortises and dovetail joints, that sort of thing. BLO is boiled linseed oil.

Nice wacker Brian.
Did you fill the inside with loose lead weights? If not, it is nice to have a dead blow model too.

Steve, I didn’t go the dead blow route with this. Seems like a fine excuse to build another one down the road.
