Turning a Simple Carvers Mallet from Spalted Beech

This time I’m making a carvers mallet from spalted beech wood on the lathe. The simple shape is ideal when working with different carving chisels while it is also a great exercise in woodturning. The total length is about 10″ (250mm) and the head is 3″ (75mm) wide on the largest part. I used Boiled linseed oil for a finish as i do on all my wooden tools.
Thank you very much for watching!

Big thanks to all my patrons especially The Nerd Inventor, Sithis Michaelis, and Larry Radcliffe!
