Thank you, Sonny. The SU model helped me understand what
was going on better. The project is "beyond me", at least at this point,
but I appreciate the "artistry" of the craftsman. Most of us would
have reached over and grabbed a block plane--so uncivilized! ; )

Initial and date your mallet?
Sometimes, improvising/making a tool is a project, in and of itself, so the time value doesn't matter. It's the accomplishment, even though it's a usable tool. Later, it may become an heirloom, for your son(s)/daughter(s)/grands, not just "a tool".
About 8 years ago I decided I was interested in making a banjo something
And after studying it for a while, I realized I should learn how to make
a box first.
The banjo project is "almost" in sight. I bought the hoop (Oak).
The banjo doesn't look much more difficult than the plane above!
I still may seek my entryway into luthery via mountain dulcimer, we'll see.
