    Turned Mallet

    This was cool. I don't know how well the joint would hold up under serious banging, but it looks nice.

    Cool stuff. I'd think the joint would hold up fine, considering that modern glue joints are typically stronger than the wood itself.

    Gonna have to have a serious talk to my wood and machinery. I made a larger tapping tool like that out of green oak which cracked as expected but continues to work just fine. I need a lighter one too though. Hmm, the work crew tore down a little oak just the right size putting in a culvert in front of my place today. Wonder if they would miss a foot or two of it? I do expect them to clean up but that may be a forlorn hope. Enough plastic bottles being thrown down up and down the highway to float an Abram's tank!
