    The two handles are nearly Identical the second mallets head is just larger in diameter the same shape as the other just bigger. This UHMW on the lathe isn't much fun because it makes one non stop shaving as long as you keep cutting and when that starts to wrap back onto the handle or the headstock it's a pain to cut it off.

      The main use of these is against my Pfeil and my german tools that I made cherry handles for. The wood on wood is just too much and after a while the handles would split, I could put metal bands on the handles but I think it's too ugly. So far so good and I will be ordering more material for the heads, I think I will stick with the larger sized 3" and 3 1/2" heads.
