Four different mallet designs and two baby mallets

Four different mallet designs and two baby mallets.

After splitting my mallet log into quarters (see part one of this project by clicking here) I turned to the lathe work. I produced four different mallets, each one with its own unique handle. I turned the first and the second handles identical, then altered one of them into a hexagonal shape. I was curious to see if this handle would feel better in my hand, theorizing that because in closing a hand over the handle, we form a polygon shape (try closing your fingers on an imaginary handle and look at it, you’ll see what I mean), perhaps a hexagonal handle would fit best. Then, I turned the two remaining mallet handles, each with a different design.




And now its time to announce the winners of the mallet pageant.

The first and second place are reserved for two handles that are very much the same.
