You have made a wonderful tool that you will always cherish. Congratulations.

Jim, that looks good. That class seems to have been very productive.

Isn’t as “fancy” as other mallets I’ve seen on LJ…however this one truly embodies the vision of “my futur mallet”, right down the the leather leash!

A couple of quick questions: What are the dimensions of the head, taper of the angle of the striking faces, length of handle, etc?


Have your say...
