    Default CNC mallet

    I've been working on this one for a bit.
    I needed something for my Saturn that I could whack stock around with, when clamped, that would not damage the stock or the bed surface. I was using a metal hammer but I had to be very careful how I used it.
    The mallet is made of five layers of luan with five 2" fender washers to add weight.

    Lots of poly to make it slide on the bed surface if needed.

    It has removable mallet heads.

    The heads sit a little short of the mallet face to keep it off the surface. Right now I have an oak head and a balsa wood head.
    Turns out that luan is really chippy. Even with poly. I find it adds character. I really like the rustic look.

    Yes I used my hole and peg system again. Can't seem to stop doing that.
    Feels really nice and robust. Now I can whack things around without marring anything.

    Thanks David. Next is to get that Etsy shop up and running. I have half a dozens products planned but settled on starting with a business card holder to be my first.
    It's one of the first projects I made on my old 1x1 plastic CNC.
    CAD modeling is finished, working on the CAM now.

    Jack.
