    I've been wanting to buy a real leather maul for a while but I just couldn't justify the price.
    Tandy has them on sale right now for about $150 for a good quality poly maul.

    Sooo... I figured I should be able to build one. Well my first vision was some sort of stick with a knob of leather on the end. When I went digging through my junk I found a whole bunch of stuff I could use.
    Well it kept getting more involved as it went along from there. Here's what I ended up with for a few hours work ( not counting drying time for hardening the leather ) and all the parts were stuff I had laying around.
    I was aiming for around 2 pounds and ended up at 2.3.

    that is very nice, is it a good maul or a bad maul??

    might be a real bad attempt at star wars humor

    Oddly enough when you Google "maul" you get adds for star wars stuff.
