Made a mallet for a friend that works at a distillery. It’s for pounding the bungs into the barrels. (Plus, if you are making something simple, and have enough scraps, why not make two?) Made from tight grain oak scraps and copper wedges. Signature Montana quarter.

Head is 2 3/4” x 3” x 4 7/8”
Handle is 7/8” x 1 1/4ish x 11 1/2”
Overall Length 14 1/2”

The copper and quarters is a neat touch. Nice whackers.

Well done, the quarter adds an air of elegance.

Thanks everyone for the warm welcome and the feedback. Forgot to mention that each mallet weighs about 30oz. Wasn’t sure what kind of lanyard or tie to use to hang them. Any tips or direction to find a good way to tie them off would be much appreciated.

Cheers

Not sure who is the more lucky.
You having a friend that works in a distillery.
Or your friend having you, making him such a beautiful mallet!

Always nice to get feed back from the ones you admire. All smiles.

Mads- My friend and I worked together for many years building and crafting in a high end cabinet shop. We also have been fortunate to go on many adventures together. This is just another chapter and I would like to think of us as equally fortunate.

Kindest regards
