Soft-head Mallet

I just finished making a soft-head mallet for the dungeon workshop. It was formed from the unholy mating of hemlock (the head) and a 30 year seasoned beech branch (the handle). No electricity was used in making this mallet and nothing alive was killed in the process. Hopefully, this will keep the townspeople from paying me a visit with torches in hand.

I just realized, in my desire pump up the dungeon theme I wasn’t clear about the tools used in this construction. I did use a table saw, band saw and power sanders on this project. However, true to my words, nothing was electrocuted to bring it to life.

I feel so much better having made that clear. :)

Thanks, Lee. Yeah, practical and pragmatic. I have become the willow that the wind bent the dickens out of. :)
