It’s Mallet Time


A mallet like this was one of the first projects I ever made on a lathe, with my father’s help. I gave the mallet to Mary Cate, who used it in the kitchen (you’d be surprised how often a mallet for whacking things comes in handy in the kitchen).

Unfortunately, this was during the time when our youngest liked to toss things in the trash. At least, that’s why we assume that it disappeared forever within a couple of weeks of me making it.

So years later, I made two more. One is for the kitchen, and one is for me in my shop.

The heads are made from maple. The handle of the one on top is ash, and the one on bottom is oak.
