Making Mallets

Its a lovely connection using tools you have made yourself on wood
you have found and collected yourself.
This is some Magnolia from my tree I have had drying a few years.
I have a few pieces I will rough into handle shapes.

When cleaning up the age, beauty and weight of these old
Preston Spokeshaves is lovely.
I particularly like the warmth in the thick castings of the adjustable mouth Record.
Its just nice to make some shavings.
It is all therapy from this modern world after all.
Us woodworking nerds, hiding in our workshops, making pretty things...
