From the album: Big Ash MalletHere is a fun picture showing the hand tools I used to help make this mallet, it took a combination of my table saw to make the slots, the shoulder plane to clean up the slots, the miter saw to cut the blanks at 5 degrees, and my hand tools to shape and make it interesting.
Spent all day yesterday with my son, looking for old handsaws (another story entirely). A couple of Kijiji contacts, three permanent-type yard sales, and a very large Re-Store. He found plenty, but I only saw one thing that interested me. I used one of these when I started in woodworking (around the age of four). The tensioning doodad was missing, and this one will be altered to look a little better. John
