This is my first mallet, it was very useful for chopping the mortises and in “pursuading” the stretchers to fully seat on the work bench I just completed. It is made of ash and for strength the center section and handle are a continuous piece within the lamination.

Here comes a stupid question !!!!!!!!! Drum roll please…............ Why either shop made or bought do wood working mallets have tapered striking faces?

ooootis,
Just a guess, but probably so striking the object with a flat face is easier on the wrist.

Exactly Gene, and the benefit of making your own is that you get to customize the angle to suit your body’s natural striking poition.
