My 1st lathe project in 20 years

A mallet for my leather stamping and wood carving, or a noggin thumper if needed. Turned from a block of walnut on a delta midi I bought from a member here

You'll get years of use out of that tool. And you'll get years of fun out of that lathe.

Nice job on the attitude adjuster...........I mean the mallet. Awesome stuff.

There is a very fine line between a "hobby" and a "mental illness"

Nice mallet. Nicer signature. One of my all time favorite songs.

Great looking mallet, but I see some of your chip carvings in the photo as well. How about some photos of your chip carvings?

I am just starting to teach myself chip carving, nothing yet to post and there is a steep learning curve for me as the right finesse, depth of cut, and straight line ability is eluding me at this juncture.
