having access to lots of scrap wood is a definite advantage for the frugal woodworker! with a little time, lots of elbow grease, and some sweat i was able to make these two beautiful jointer’s mallets.
i hand planed all the pieces, and cut them to size with my table saw. the heads are made of white ash, the handles are cherry, and all were scrap wood pieces which would have been burned! i epoxied bb’s into the hollow core centers for proper balance.
