Sweet Terry! Thanks for running the swap! I’m excited to participate in my first swap. It’ll be a good excuse to get out and finally do something in the shop and to get myself closer to working order out there!

I’m in the same boat, with wedding end of may. But there’s some good time between now and then, and ship date isn’t until the 17th of June :-)

I’ve already read two sites about how to make mallets, the best wood to use, and located a block of wood on ebay…I don’t think I’ll be able to hold back much longer, lol.

OK, Hammerthumb, we’ll let you make one from greenstone if ya really want…but you better get started now! No lapidary equipment allowed…only stone dust and leather. LOL. (But that’s how our ancestors did it)

Happy b-day, Mos! Not now, but later…whomever gets Mos’ name better make a good one! :)

Presentation mallet in OP is carved from Ebony and Ivory, circa 1927.
