Re: tool/work piece vibrations

I don't think that is the case here. I am starting off with a 3" x 3" block 12-14" long. If I was putting too much longitudinal stress on the block, something bad would happen when I reduce the diameter at the ends of the mallet to less than 3/8". If there was a lot of stress there, one would perhaps see the mallet bow out. I have made 10 of these, and this has never happened.
