I made this mallet while I was building a Morris chair. I like the feel of it and it worked well. The head has just enough weight to make it effective. One end is covered in leather, for tapping joints together. It feels good to make something that you can use and I can see these being somewhat addictive to make. Made from Maple and Walnut.

Steve – that sounds great, they could use a little tune up.
