I have wanted to make a mallet since i got my lathe 2 weeks ago. I decided to use a piece from a pallet i got. Big pallet. Not sure what type of wood it is. I think its maple but if anyone knows for sure. I would love to hear it. In the pic it only has one coat of tung oil.

That does look really nice. Problem with good looking mallets is you really don't want to mess the up by actually using them. :smartass:

I got some nasty looking marks in my first mallet and almost cried. Of course now I just grab it to beat things with that I don't want to leave marks in or that need a light touch.

Nice, mallets are made to take lots of SCARS....., don't make it a TRAILER QUEEN. I'm a Hot Rodder, Not a big fan of TRAILER QUEENS.
