This handmade jointers mallet is made from laminated black walnut and eastern maple, and is weighted with lead-shot and wax.
The head of each 4.5" joiners mallet head weighs approximately 1 lb, the handle 8oz.
The joiner's mallet is characterized by two slightly angled flat faces and a large head. The angled face of the mallet makes it easier to swing as your arm stays lower. The large face lets you concentrate on your chisel's business end and ignore how your mallet strikes are falling. As such, they excel at heavy chisel work, where both power and precision are required. The flat faces provide you with accuracy, while the heft provides power. This is my go-to mallet for chopping big mortises.
Materials: Canadian hard Maple, Walnut, Boiled Linseed Oil
