Pretty cool. Did you add any shot to the inside? I hope you’ll post finished product pictures. Great job

No shot. Baby steps. This is my first one. :-)

Here it is with danish oil. Just finished up.

Never heard of Ekki before.

I never heard of ekki before either. I thought it was teak and posted about my find and someone kindly pointed out what it most likely really is. I looked it up online and it seems like a match for ekki considering where it came from as well as the description and photos. It was the decking from pier 17 at south st seaport which was demolished after sandy. I got my hands on it because a client’s designer purchased it for a shelving project and I’m taking home the leftovers when we’re done. The mallet was made from short cutoffs from last week’s work that I could fit into my backpack. Very heavy stuff.

I’ve seen these beautiful mallets that kiefer makes and I thought I’d give one a try. It’s a project I’ve wanted to do for a long time now. The wood is reclaimed ekki? pier decking that I picked up and some maple a buddy gave me from an old drafting table. It’s not finished but I got a good start on sanding before I took these pictures. I had a little tear out when chamfering the edges but it’s not too bad. I may give it away as a gift to a client.
