Been meaning to make a mallet for quite some time. I was on vacation this week and was finally able to get out and do a few small projects in the shop.
I also just got a cheapy Harbor Freight mini lathe and the mallet handle was my first attempt at turning. I think it came out pretty good.
Out of all the projects I did this week, this was my favorite. My wife just shook her head every time she came out and saw me working on this. She just didn’t get it.

Woods: maple maho pur

Tools: lathe band table s sander

Shop made mallets are the best. I love mine. Yours is very beautiful. And yeah, a lot of people don’t get it, but when you get it, it’s pretty special.
