Here one of the two similar mallets I have finished today.
The handle is actually a piece of maple hardwood floor that the previous homeowners left in a pile in my garage. I guess they never used it because of the light spalting on it. The mallet head is made from mahogany and jatoba. The dowels are ash and the wedges are walnut.
I did not need to add any sand or BBs to the head, the jatoba it already heavy enough.
I am officially all out of 4/4 Jatoba. My table saw blades a rejoicing!
