When I finished this mallet, I thought that it was nearly perfect. Well ballanced and it had a really nice “FEEL” to it. I absolutely loved it, So I gave it to a good friend, who understands WHY I would give away something I liked so much..I am proud of both acts; the making AND the giving. RJM

Handmade tools that are lovingly made are a treasure to have. Wonderful work!

-- I love my lathe. It’s old, not too pretty and I don’t really know how to use it… Love it!
