Hi, for this project I used a bow saw and a hatchet. I wanted to try and make a working handle without using my knife at all. -Chris

BB submission pending approval
I am not seeing a lot of requirements other than wood mallet hand tools only so here goes with my version of a club style mallet.

This is made from a cedar branch and is light but very easy to use. The branch is still very green and should hold up to some abuse for a while.

Staff note :

The requirements are listed at the bottom of the first post. The only thing you're missing is a picture of it in your hand showing your thumb and fingers wrapping around it.
