Rick, you'd be "thor" too if you made as many mallets as Herb.

Great way to make a mallet Herb.
From a previous post of yours I made a collection of mallets using left over pcs of hardwood.
Over a time I have given them to family and friends, they loved them.
Now you have jogged my memory I looked in my off cut box.
Next project is making more mallets.
Thanks Herb
Cheers

Only issue I have with this hammer is, it’s far too nice to use

I don’t always insulate , but when I do .
Ok ,I never insulate

If you texture the ends, you have a meat tenderizer. Maple, edible oil finish. This is one of those historical threads well worth resurection, just in time for Christmas.

That really is a beautiful mallet. I'm too lazy to go to that trouble so this pdf shows how I made a one piece one which I have used quite a lot.
Your photo-shoot is perfect, more members should consider doing the same.

Wow, that is a cool way to make one, that material is harder than maple. I like the angle too, some mallets have too much angle to the face,less is better I think.

A smooth face is easier on the thumb when you hit it.............

After I first posted it my friend and fellow member George pointed out that the ends shouldn't be square so I trimmed them to 5°.
