People post blogs and projects about mallets.
I don’t have one but I’d like to make one. Do I want one small and knimble (Brass etc about 1 1.5lbs) or a 3 – 5 lb clunker.
It seems that the one’s I’ve seen shown here are either square with a sloped face and a handle or a round one with an oval shape.
I currently use a blaock of Osage Orange that is a cutoff from a gavel that I made. It’s about 3” long and 3” across (round) and no handle. I use it to lightly pare mortise and tenons. The mortises are cut with a mortise machine. And the tenons are cut on the table saw/bandsaw.
What do others find useful?
