This is a mallet to use on our new lathe in the woodshop in the High Chapparal park. It is the first project off the lathe. The head is made from a piece of Idaho mountain mahogany that had too may inclusions in it to be good for anything else. The handle is a piece of cedar off the new firewood pile. The handle has an oval section in the hand grasping area. Although the cedar is purple now, when it is exposed to sunlight for a while it will be as brown as the head. The head is 5” long and about 2” in diameter.
It is finished with clear gloss lacquer…....................Jim
