I considered building a mallet, but with so many other projects in the queue, I decided to buy the 4 1/2” mallet from grizzly.com.
The handle finish is a little rough. There is also dirt and a brown substance all over the mallet. The pictures are of the new, unused mallet. Many mallet heads are made from several parts laminated together. This mallet head is a solid piece with a tapered hole bored through for the handle. The result is a somewhat sloppy fit.
At $12.95, it wasn’t an expensive tool, but there will be no pride of ownership. Save your money and build your own.
