Making Your Own Mallet

Making a Woodworking Mallet by Hand Part 3 is on YouTube so I hope that you enjoy the work we did to bring this series about. It’s training we’ve taken from the free subscription section of our woodworkingmasterclasses.com series and it’s training woodworkers all around the world to apprehend life-sustaining skills for a lifetime and at the same time keeping the footprint on the world to a minimum. More than even that though, it’s health giving, wellbeing and enjoyment with real exercise all rolled into a world of real woodworking!

    I’m looking forward to having a go at this one. I recently saw some timber called Ekki and thought what an ideal wood to make a mallet from, an Ekki thump so to speak.
    I have a lump of Laburnum set aside for this project which I have heard is a fairly hard wearing timber, I’ve not worked with Laburnum before so I can’t wait to get started.

    Such an interesting video there – it’s amazing to see you work that piece of Oak from so many different angles.

    What a great way to learn about wood grain and it’s direction.

    Thank you …
