I'm sure it was on here but now I can't find it. It was a mallet made of two contrasting woods but was laminated vertically as opposed to horizontally. ( Meaning the handle and the head were two separate pieces ) As I recall, a box joint was used to tie the two ends together.........does this ring a bell with anybody? :confused1:

I am not following your terms of "vertical" and "horizontal".

A number of mallet threads.

Lots of pictures in the two mallet swaps.

My mallet from the swap part deux shown in post #145 is made from two pieces, head and handle. Handle is laminated.

This one is laminated, but as single assembly.

I made a mallet for the first swap where I glued the pieces for the head around the handle. Post #749

Hi Dave...I didn't explain it too well I guess and now this may not help all that much either but this is what I'm after:



Hope you can make a little sense out of this.

It may have been sawdustfactory, I didn't watch the video, I just remember seeing the finished mallet. Now that I have a little more lathe time under my belt I tried to find it again but couldn't. That would be great if it showed the glue up steps.

Lots of enjoyable reading there Dave. It was fun putting names with some faces and sensing everyone's excitement and enthusiasm for that whole project. Lots of great looking mallets too. I didn't find the one that I'm thinking of but tomorrows another day. Thanks a lot.

So the mallet swaps were a ton of fun and a nice project. Would there be any interest in a third swap I'm sure we have new members and others that missed out. Plus I wouldn't mind doing another lol.

Look up Frank Howarth on YouTube. He has a mallet video almost exactly like your drawing. Plus, his videos are very well done.

Yes indeed Wooduse, that showed me exactly what I needed to know. I looked for that or a similar one last night for two hours with no luck. Thank You for posting. :thumbsup:
