Good idea to turn an old pin into a mallet. Yours came out really sharp! I have a bowling pin in the shop too—think I’ll put this on my To Do list. I think bowling pins are mostly laminated maple so it should make a good hitter.

Surely it is made in two parts with two kinds of wood.It looks that way.I would love to get these bowling pins how do you come by them? If you don’t mind me asking.I think this is a very nice mallet and love the idea of using remodelled materials. have fun Alistair

That was my intention SCOTSMAN to make the handle look as if it were added by staining it with a colored stain. As far as how do you come by them? Go to the bowling alley and tell the manager your intention, letting him know he will get the first one you make as I have given this one to my “bowling pin” guy. He gave me a used box of 10 and said if I needed more just ask.

Great looking mallet and a very interesting story/lesson on how to get bowling pins.
It will be interesting to see what you build from them.

Have your say...
