The ‘non disputandum’ mallet for heavy work. 1.3 kg (46 oz) including handle. Head is Canadian beech, harvested Glenn and infused with acrylic. Handle is brown ash, split not sawn for straight grain. Stanley #3 shown for scale. Green beech and air dried ash are great to split and work with hand tools. Head angle 5 degrees, handle width 7/8 not 3/4.

I’m not sure of the wood used for the mallet head. It was repurposed from the floor of an old Union Pacific rail car. This is the first mallet I’ve ever made. Thank Paul and the rest!
A joiner’s mallet following Mr Sellers’ design, also in oak. The head is laminated from two bits to save a few pennies, I’ll be sure to send an update if it falls apart! The handle started thicker at 1 1/4 in to accomodate the shaping and it’s nice and comfortable in the hand.
