This dead blow mallet is a fun, useful project that I use on basically every project. Anything I build for the shop is designed and built like it’s going to a customer so the mallet was no exception.
This little persuader was made with Maple and Paduk just to make it stand out in a crowd. It is filled with lead pellets, in my case I used BB’s to give it the weight required to function properly. The head on the mallet has a leather face added to protect whatever needs to be adjusted. If you build this dead blow hammer you won’t be disappointed, I’m sure it will come in very handy for the majority of your projects.
I made one of these years ago and have used it so often that I’ve had to replace the leather face pads twice now. I’m sure yours will get used all of the time as well. Plus of course it is a cool project!
