Mary May is a fantastic woodcarver. I met her very briefly at the Handworks event last week. A friend of hers makes these brass mallets to her specifications. They have just the right heft and they look beautiful! Of all the really cool tools at Handworks, this is the one thing that I just had to have. It is the most comfortable mallet I have ever seen and I am really glad that I got one
The ends on each of these mallets had hand carved embellishments and each of them was a different.
