Japanese Mallet Jig.
Came up with this idea, one side drills a 22mm hole (then I will taper it)
The other side drills 3 holes, 16mm, but the 2 outside taper inwards.

One Jig many mallets!
Just playing till I get the perfect design.
Will take along to next JTSG meeting for everyone to adjust planes with.
Get some proper feedback!

So just under 2 hours work and I have 4 finished heads.
2 yet to be turned and lots of handle material sectioned up ready to go.
I have decided to go with Yew and Hickory and Holm Oak for handle material.
I have plenty of Ash (your traditional choice) but like to experiment!
