Last week my old oak mallet finally gave up on me so it was time for an upgrade..
I used mostly hand tools except for cutting out the rough outline of the handle.
This mallet is made from hard maple and jatoba with a couple 1 1/2” holes in the center laminate filled with BB’s. Finish is 3-2-1 and paste wax. Total weight is 34oz! My chisels are shaking in their holders right now…
Build pics and details can be found in My Blog
