Woodsmith Shop-Built Mallets Plan

SKU
WOODSMITH-SHOP-BUILT-MALLETS-GROUP

There’s a certain satisfaction that comes from building a practical, quality tool and using it in the shop. The cabinetmaker’s mallet is a great tool for all-around shop use. It’s shape and heft come in handy during project construction and assembly. And the rounded carver’s mallet provides just the right control for chisel work and carving. Both of the mallets share the same laminated design for the head. We used alternating layers of Lyptus and maple, but you could use any contrasting hardwoods you have available. The layered construction makes them easy to build and durable enough for a lifetime of use. One of the keys to creating a hand tool you’ll really use is making it comfortable to hold. So shaping the handles is critical. The nice thing is, it’s easy to do with a simple technique and a shop-made jig for your router table.

We offer the Woodsmith Shop-Built Mallets plan as a downloadable PDF or a printed format that we ship to you.
