Making a Carver’s Mallet

I recently cut my first set of hand cut dovetails.  In the process I realized that I needed a proper mallet, among other tools.  I decided that I’ve been woodworking for too long not to have a mallet so it was off to the lathe to turn a carver’s mallet.

I make the mallet from a glued up blank of walnut and maple.  If you’d like to see how I did it check out the video below.
