    Mini brass mallet

    I was having a mental block while working on a mahl stick project and allowed myself a short distraction, and this was the result. It's made from scrap brass bar stock that I got in a lot of antique tools, a piece of carbon fiber golf club shaft and 1/4 x 20 brass bolts & nuts. Despite it's chunky appearance, its balance point is just aft of center of the head.

    Thanks. I originally planned to use a chrome golf club shaft and leave the brass rough, but ran across this glossy CF piece in the scrap bin, and the whole plan changed.
