During our last visit to our daughter and son-in-law, he had recently completed a very nice side table for their living room. During our discussion of the table it was revealed that he had hand cut the mortises with a fine set of wood chisels, however it was also noted that he was using a rubber mallet with his chisels.

Upon our return home I set about to make him a wooden Jointer’s Mallet to complement his wood working. The mallet was completed in time to mail to him as a birthday present. The Mallet head is White Oak sandwiched between Cherry. The handle is hard maple. Finish is Danish oil. Thanks for looking.
