This is a great tool if you like carving wood and you need a light mallet.
It is not a time consuming project and anyone with a basic skill set can do it(provided you have a wood lathe)
Last year was a great one for peach production and as a result our peach tree gave up under the weight of all the fruit.
Having this wood on hand I decided it must be used for a cool project and not for fire wood.
The wood piece in the video is walnut ,also saved from the burn pile.
I took a piece of paper and folded it in two.
I drew the outline of the mallet size I wanted to do and cut away the excess.
This way I got a symmetric pattern.
