This is my first wood turning project a pair of cherry wood carving mallets. This projects was much more difficult that I anticipated. A light coat of lacquer and they are ready for business. The only modification I may make is to drill the head and add a slug of lead to increase the effectiveness of the striking.

Beautiful work! Are those from a solid block of cherry or a block made from boards glued together?

It’s a glue up. You can tell by the changing grain between the straight lines of glue…

Thanks for the great feedback! instead of having the handle just abruptly end I decided to put an acorn accent on the end to give it a little more interest and detail.

I focused heavily on designing the handle. I not only wanted it comfortable but wanted it to not slip out of your hand. I places an acorn on the end just for fun. The grooves are not only placed in it for decoration but they are very functional.

Good looking mallets! Like the shape especially the handles, look comfy to hold. The grooves and acorn ends are nice accents and give nice grips. Well done!
