Well, I was out in the shop yesterday when my lovely bride walked in holding a package for me that was just delivered. Then I remembered all the harassing text messages I sent to my favorite coon ass Cozmo35 asking for a chisel mallet (I don’t know the technical name for it so that is what it was referred to as…lol). You see, he lucked up on a good deal on a lathe. Well, me being the good friend I am wanted to be sure he had some projects to keep him busy. After all…. isn’t that what woodworking buddies are for?

I finally got done doing my world famous rendition of the “Chicken Dance” due to the excitement of what kind of treat I had in the box…. and this is what I found…..

Talk about one sweet mallet! I am going to be able to do all kinds of cool stuff with this bad boy… Ohhh I couldn’t wait to grab a chisel and start whacking away…..

Just as I was starting to really get into the fun my lovely bride came out, and found another use for my awesome new addition to the tool arsenal. She reminded me that ”We” had to go finish up some Christmas shopping. I am not so much a fan for her use of this new tool…..

All kidding aside I am beside myself on how cool this mallet is. Thank you so much Mike for the wonderful gift and you can rest assured this dude will get some serious use.

Mike….. You Da Man!

I believe the proper name for this tool is a “maul”.

Excellent work and sentiment! Dan, seeing the look on your wife’s face, just be glad Coz didn’t turn a baseball bat for you ;-) Happy shopping…

Yea, I will have to agree with yall…. She did snag up the mallet like a natural. Kind of scary now that I think about it. I may just have to keep this jewel hidden for my own safety….lol
