Goodmorning fellow LJ’S, this is my first hammer project and it was a lot of fun to make. It is made from scrap walnut and oak and the center layer I drilled out two resivours and filled them with left over BB’S from my sons pellett gun lol, worked pretty well gave it enough heft and some deadblow feel to it also. Finished it with three coats of Danish oil, The walnut handle Im not sure will stand up to the beatings but I had the perfect scap piece for it so ill keep you updated if the handle gives out in time. Thanks for taking a look.

Looks great!
Making a mallet is a prerequisite for the site…along with a kerf maker and cutting board

Great looking mallet! Like the use of contrasting woods. I am sure it will get plenty of use. Well done!
