I am planning on making a croquet mallet this week and was hoping to use some teak I picked up for the mallet head. I don’t want to go buy any wood and the only exotic I have on hand is teak. I have read that teak is hard and dense, but can be somewhat brittle.
Do any of you have any experience using teak for a mallet head or in any other harsh impact situation? Let me know what you think.
I have never worked with it before, but would love to use it for this project if it will withstand the constant whacking.
