I made this awesome carving mallet out of maple and teak. This build is inspired by Thor's hammer (Mjölnir).

Step 1: Processing the Wood
Cutting the stock to rough hammer head size and gluing it together

Chiseling the mortise hole to fit the handle

Transferring the design via Indigo paper

Carving the design using the different gouges and Rotary tool
And finishing the wood with Linseed oil

Best trick ever ;) :D
Step 6: Cutting the Tool Holder
My Brother made the holder and I carved the serpent Jörmungandr and Tolkien runes on It "made by Moris"
