A variation on the only other mallet I’ve made, this is a present for my father for Christmas. The head is walnut and the handle is curly oak. I contoured the handle instead of leaving it as a straight cylinder. The head is finished with Danish oil and wax, and the handle is finished with a few coats of satin poly.

It’s a very nice looking tool. I’m sure that your father loved it.
