Theo’s Mallet – with Turned Oval Handle – With Theo Haralampou from his studio workshop in Brisbane, Australia


Is it Thor’s Hammer???…naah…it’s Theo’s Mallet !!

In this session, Theo guides us how to create this great utility item for the workshop or kitchen. 

It can be uses as a ‘persuader’ for stubborn woodworking joints, as a meat tenderizer for the BBQ, or for knocking in tent pegs.  The uses are endless!!

Turning an oval handle on 3 centres is the main feature of this demonstration.

In this project Theo will cover:

  • The importance of grain direction and alignment
  • Drilling the handle hole centrally on the lathe
  • Getting the best finish from a roughing gouge
  • Uncovering the mystery of off-centre turning to form the oval handle
  • Inserting the wedge… do’s and don’ts.
