Project Information

After the summer mallet swap I decided to make a dice mallet for myself and wound up making a dozen of them, trying out a lot of different woods, and ideas. There is a 2 part blog explaining all of the build details. Since I had plenty of extras, I found some "volunteers" to give them a good home and sent them off to their new "forever" homes. Hopefully, they will prove to be useful and durable (though I already heard one of the handles broke during shipping).

Glad to say I am one of the 'volunteers' and I can hardly wait until it gets here (Tuesday tracking says!). I am really impressed that you would do this for all of us Earl and I promise to make it up to you! And I hope this blog will help all of my fellow woodworkers to accomplish great things!

Somehow I got on the volunteer list too. Thanks, Earl! Looking forward to seeing the mallet in person in a couple days!

Looking at the tracking, they tried to deliver it at 4:15 this afternoon, but it was going to my work address (the mailman at home is horrible) so they'll try again on Tuesday.

Dave just make sure you don't open it in public in case you have work policies regarding adult beverages at work.

That's a gang of some dang sexy mallets Earl! As a previous recipient of one of these jewels, I can say that they're even more impressive in person than in the pics! And they're users too. It stings a little every time you do use it but the mallet doesn't seem to mind ;-)

How did you guys manage to keep the beers long enough to take pics?

This showed up at my house yesterday with a couple of beers:


It was a total surprise since Earl had already sent me one of his dice mallets! He said he was afraid the first one was getting lonely and needed company :)


They seem really happy together. I'm hoping they'll make some babies!

(And I was kidding about the beers ;-0 They are in the fridge and will meet their fate later this week/weekend!)

Earl, you're a helluva guy. Waaaayyyyyyyy nicer than me!!!! Thanks man :)))
