Hey Guys....please post up photos of the mallets you are receiving over the next few weeks!
You have no idea how thrilled I am with the mallet. Man I love these swaps!Hi Guys, sorry I forgot to put any details about the mallet. It's a stacked rings style, red oak, not weighted but the "high impact, durable, space age, rust proof material".....the red plastic is very dense and heavy. It's a cutting board. I've made some with the clear and I've been able to just wail on stuff with no problem, but when I went to Wally World to get a cutting board, I saw the red and thought I'd try it with the red oak. If it fails Bumpus let me know and I'll replace it with an all oak model. It's finished with BLO so there won't be any problem with the finish chipping. I'm glad you like it and thanks for the comments guys. Dave
Hey Frank, it should come today. Again, I hope you like it and that its not too light in weight. I didn't add to much weight to it. Its made from black walnut, red oak, and I believe the handle is cherry or ash. My first attempt with a mallet and BLO finish so I hope it works out. :yes:Mine is going in the mail tomorrow to whomever will receive it. (Keeping that a secret for now.) As for the one I'm to receive, Dopalgangr informed me that it should arrive in the next few days. Excited to see it.
Nice work! In fact, they all are awesome looking!Bumpus said:I got home from work this evening, snow everywhere. I live about 40 miles south of BassBlaster so I figured there was not much of a chance of getting my mallet. My wife tells me after dinner that there's a box on the porch for me. "What did you order now?" Yea, she has a right to ask that question. But nope....straight from Glenville, West 'by God' Virginia! "adot45" is the maker and boy did he do a nice job on it! I was hoping for a 'turned' mallet since I have no lathe. The mallet is nice and heavy, fits my hand well and looks damn nice to boot! I almost hate to use it, but I know they're supposed to be used. Again adot45, thanks for the great mallet and nice note! As for the recipient of my mallet, in my haste to get to the post office, not only did I not insert my note, I didn't even put my screen name on the box! (BTW, I'm Ken :smile
