  1. Didn't get to see this till tonight just before bed. What a beautiful way to end my day! Thanks for all your videos.

  2. i just made my first mallet, much differently than yours tho. yours is a very nice looking one.

  3. Is that mallet heavy enough? If it isn't, you'll get tired in a short while. I've worked with several mallets of different weights and I found out that the most useful for general purposes weighs 1 Kg and is made of very hard rubber. Smaller ones hit your hand instead of your tool. But wooden mallets are better for carving work, like this beautiful example.

  4. Love you Leah but, if the center of mass of the head is not at the handle you are asking for trouble. Compare to almost every tool that exists.

  5. Looks great. One question. Why glue the wedge into the handle? In time will the wood not contract and the wedge needs to be adjusted?
