The wood lathe I use most often is a vintage “Blount” brand lathe. I have been using since I was young boy. My dad purchased it at an estate sale in the 70′s
I was thinking of a good project for the lathe and I settled on this mallet. I looked in the scrap pile and I found this piece of ipe and chunk of a beech wood butcher block. Both are hardwoods and perfect for a mallet. Enjoy!
In each episode of DiResta (every other Wednesday), artist and master builder Jimmy DiResta (Dirty Money, Hammered, Against the Grain, Trash for Cash) lets us into his workshop, to look over his shoulder while he builds whatever strikes his fancy.
