For this project I use the Excelsior Mini Lathe from Rockler to duplicate my Purple Heart carving mallet. I really like the weight and feel of this mallet and it works great.   I used the mallet to cut the dovetails on the walnut end tables I made a few weeks ago. I’m giving both of these mallets away –  one on Instagram and the other on Facebook. Check it out and leave a comment to enter the giveaway.   Here’s the video, a sketch of the design with measurements  if you want to make your own, and a few photos from the project.
