I am posting my first LJ project. It’s just a simple wooden mallet that I made from a piece of Oak that I found at work. I made it for just general use around the shop. Nothing too fancy or difficult. Just put a tapered mortised through the head and then tapered the top of the handle. This is the first time I have ever created a mortise joint and I did it all with a couple of chisels. I also got a chance to use my new (to me) No. 4 Stanley plane.
Come to think of it, this is the first project that I built using anything other than pine. :P
Next project is a marking gauge.
