This is a great project for those who want to make something cool, easy to make.
The cost of the materials for this project was essentially 0€ and nails come from pallet too.
With the pallet wood you can get some really nice grain and patterns.
Don't forget free is better ^^

Step 1: Materials and Tools
- Pallet Wood
- Square piece of wood
- Nails - come from pallet
- Some oil (optional)
- Cutting tool
- Wood plane
- 80 and 200 grid sandpaper
- Wood glue
Step 2: Building
Very simply, we'll put it all together with wood glue.
We start with the board 20 * 8 cm then two boards 8 * 8 cm and the handle between the two, another two boards 8 * 8 cm and finally the last board 20 * 8 cm.
You can see the result with photos.
We glue everything with wood glue and clamp with c-clamp.
After drying, we put four nails into the handle.
For the handle I will use a plane to transform square to oval to get a better grip.
Then sanding with 80 and 200 grid sandpaper.
And finally a layer of oil to protect it.
Here your free pallet mallet , don't forget it's better when it's free. ^^
