A big hit

The Tenderizing Mallet (Dec/Jan 2023) is one of the best I’ve seen in years, and I was compelled to make one for each of my children. But cutting the grooves with a bandsaw is time-consuming, and the accuracy is subject to user skill. Instead, I used my router table and a 1/4" 60° bit to cut the face. Starting right of center, I rotated the workpiece 90° after each cut, moving the fence every four passes.
