If you work with wood, you probably use a joiners mallet. Most woodworkers make their own, and there are a million different designs out there, so here’s our take on it. This mallet is made of just 3 parts that can be cut out on your CNC in just a few minutes.
If you want to brand your mallet, or personalize it for someone else, this video will explain how to do that with this design. Assembly is even easier - the three parts nest together to keep them properly aligned while gluing them together. Simple, elegant, and effective!

Also, stay till the end of the video for a bonus tip. We used the “waste material” from cutting out these parts for a whole other piece, making it a zero-waste project!
