Subject:
Black locust mallet?

JL
My B-I-L had a black locust tree come down in his yard.
I salvaged some of the short pieces and made mallets.

Is this a "reasonable" idea? I figured that black locust is one of the hardest domestic woods. I thought it would make a reasonable mallet head for chisels and such.
