I needed a mallet to chop out some mortises with on my workbench build. I tossed this together pretty quickly today after work. Red oak with a purple heart wedge and pig skin on the faces. Finish is BLO and wax.

Thanks guys! Once I get these chisels un-gunked and sharpened I’ll give this guy a test drive.
