Mallets

One of the nice things about mallets is just about everyone can use one.  Quite useful around the house and in the shop.  Makes no difference whether you are going to drive dowel pins or rods with it or even for that matter crack nuts, these mallets will fill that use.  Fun to turn and the designs are almost limitless, as time rolls along you will find them here turned from all kinds of local hard woods.

You have to grant the fact that this mallet is different from a lot of them out there.  First it is turned from bodark, also known as osage orange, which is a very hard and dense wood.  Second it’s head is shaped differently from most of them.  I thought it would be a nice change of pace yet it is still quite good looking and useful.  As per typical of bodark there are some stress cracks in the wood from drying.  Not much of anyway to get away from that happening, yet pretty much they cause no problems.  The one where the handle goes into the head is like that.  In fact I bored the hole in that location for that reason.  Anywhere you whack something with this head the wood will be very solid.  The head is 3 ¼” in diameter and 1 ¾” thick.  The handle is 1 1/8” in diameter with the total length of the mallet being 10”.  It was finished with straight shellac.  26Dec16  MBA6  $30.00 and $10.00 S&H

This fine looking mallet turned from spalted pecan will be useful for anyone who works with all sorts of things.  It makes no difference if you use it for chiseling or for driving dowel pins this mallet will take care of the task for you.  Pecan is a fairly hard and durable wood and this mallet should last anyone a long, long time.  Turned from one solid piece of wood the durability of this mallet is assured.  The head is 1 ½” in diameter and is 4 ½” long.  The handle is ¾” in diameter and the total length of the mallet is 9”.  The wood was sealed with walnut oil and then finished with a walnut oil based wax.  This gives the mallet a nice hard long lasting natural finish.  24Dec16  MP3  $25.00 and $10.00 S&H

Anybody that works in crafts will want one of these fine mallets.  Turned from pecan from a solid piece of wood, it is durable and good looking at the same time.  And of course you might want it to whack some unruly soul’s knuckles with it, too!  I did not say that.  The head diameter is 1 ½” and the head length is 3 ½”.  The handle is about ¾” in diameter and the total length is 8 ¾”.  I use mallets of this style in my own shop and they get a fair amount of use and probably abuse and do quite well.  Finished with straight shellac.  21Dec16  MP2  $25.00 and $10.00 S&H
