Got a surprise present the other day and I am looking forward to use these beautiful Sweet Heart chisels but before I will ,I thought I better make myself a nice little chisel mallet .
The mallet is laminated hickory for the handle and filled in with lacewood and a walnut butt ,the head is wood I got from a pallet ,beautiful tight grain and very heavy just been waiting for the right project.
The head is wedged and faced with thick leather ,don’t want to hurt those little lady’s they are just too nice.
The size is 12” long and a 6” x 2 3/4” head Put a couple of penny’s in the head for good luck .

Very nice! Is. The hole in the handle so you can twirl it around your finger cowboy style?

Awesome mallet. Looks like a built in shock absorber there. Pretty slick

The best looking mallet I’ve ever seen Klaus. Very beautiful handle design and the two wood tones look great too. Those Sweetheart chisel look awfully nice too. I like the design of those socket type chisels.

Beautiful Klaus. You treat those little ladies nice now, you hear.
(Nice does not mean that you can’t beat on them a little though)

I hope you love the new chisels. I just ordered a set of Two Cherries from Tools for Working Wood.
I’ll be getting them in about four days. You just made the waiting harder.

You just can’t stop at good enough, can you? The mallet is beautiful as well as functional, and I think the handle form will provide a bit of shock absorber effect. Great craftsmanship!

A unique and beautiful mallet. Do you get any spring from the handle?

Following up on Mauricio’s comment… you need a mallet holster for quick draw and trick shots.
