Wow, you have all made some very nice tools! Really puts my shop built stuff to shame!
I do have a mallet I just finished, and it's a big-'ol mallet too. I still need to work on the finish some, but it's all there.
I'm finishing up a marking gauge as well, just need to apply some finish to that as well.
I'll post some pics once their done, although I do want to say I'm not really happy with the way they turned out. I will be making a second marking gauge, fixing my mistakes and improving on what I have learned. The mallet is OK, but like I said, it's a really big mallet so it has limited uses.
I plan to make a few more mallets as well, the next will be smaller with angled faces, and once my rough Beech blank finishes drying I plan to turn a round carving mallet as well.
Again, you all have truly made some very nice tools, and I will admit, I'm a bit jealous too.
I think I may need to look into one of those saw kits!
