I made my first mallet six years ago.Since then, I have made four more.I picked up this technique from Woodsmith magazine and really like it.I especially like the method of creating a mortise without needing to bore a square hole.
I went to the sporting goods store the other day to pick up some fishing sinkers: little lead weights that I usually use to fill the mallet's head.After looking at the price (I would need about $15 worth of them!) my son suggested I try filling the head with sand instead.
It worked well, but it is no where near as heavy as the little lead balls.Live and learn.But it is still has a nice weight to it....
