Step 1: Choosing the Lumber

This is a piece of black walnut that is from a fallen limb. It happens to be free but after playing with it the last few months it is one of my favorites now.

Step 2: Put It on the Lathe

this step is just about making it round. lots of saw dust

Step 3: Turning the Overall Shape

This is where I put my champher on the knocking end. Custom fit handle for my hand. And I like a heavy butt end that helps balance the overall weight

Step 4: Finito

Take the mallet off of the lathe, cut off the scrap and commence to beatin!!
