The mallet is done! The mallet is done!

The mallet is finally done!  How could such a small thing take so long?

 

I cut the extra piece off with my flush trim saw.

 

 

This was the first time that I used the saw and it would appear that I cut a little too aggresively.

 

 

60 grit sandpaper smoothed it right out.  Followed by 80 and 120.

 

Time for the finish.

 

 

Now I just need to put some leather on the end to cushion the blows.  These 2 pieces of leather took me forever to find.  No shops around me sell leather.

 

I cut 2 pieces down to size.  I am going to save the black for the next mallet.

 

I put the glue on both sides and let it get tacky.

 

 

A little weight to help the bonding.

 

I then cut the excess off with a razor blade knife.

 

All trimmed up!

 

THE MALLET IS DONE!
