I'll post a photo tonight when I get home. I have made several. I still have 2 of them. One is extremely well used. the other I seldom use because the 1st one is still holding up.

Hi

Before you start you may want to check out www.Lostartpress.com, Chris Schwartz just wrote an article on a mallet made with infused wood by Blue Spruce Tools. It is not only a nice design but is amazing material.

Good Luck

Kevin
