  1. 2019 Mallet Swap

    For this years mallet swap we had a few people from over seas asking if they could participate. I jumped on that and got my recipient fairly early and started right away on my entries for the year. My items went to Norway to Tek after a short stop in France. Then to Norway….Then back to...
  2. 2019 Mallet Swap

    These are my contribution to the Mallet swap. I didn't get a picture on the pen I made for Ty. I made the items from a red maple I had cut down three or four years ago and let the log lay in the yard. When I cut it up because of the cracks I couldn't use it for bowl blanks I saw the spalting...
  3. Machinist's Hammer and Carver's Mallet for Swap

    This is my offering for this year's Mallet Swap. My main project was a machinist's hammer. This guy ended up weighing in at a hair over 3# so it's a good sized whacker. I figure most anybody can use a good sized hammer with one steel face and one brass face. The head diameter is around...
  4. This years mallet swap.

    Swaps are a good thing, everybody wins. My inspiration is a mallet I found in an antique shop somewhere. I've never seen another like it. It was made from a section of tree trunk, off center from the pith. Every side is end grain, took me a while to figure that out. I had a good sized limb of...
  5. Bent Joiner's and Carver's Mallets - Mallet Swap 2019

    For the 2019 mallet swap, I was able to turn out a coupel mallets. Sorry, won't happen again… The carver's mallet was all turned out of one round blank, and I tried to contour the handle so that it was comfortable and easy to register when used in two positions (choked up and towards the end)...
  6. 2019 Mallet Swap Entry

    The 2019 Mallet Swap was my first swap and I highly recommend it to those who haven't tried it out yet. As I told my recipient Hairy, I probably would not have joined if I hadn't decided about a week prior that I really needed to make myself a new mallet. When I visited my local crack dealer, I...
  7. Dice Mallet 2.0 and a Machinist Mallet

    So this is the second time I've had Earl as a swap recipient. I really had to step it up for him this time but last time I went pretty big so it had to really be good. If you don't know, Earl sent like 291 different people his dice mallets he made for the previous mallet swap just for fun, just...
  8. Forging Hammer for 2019 mallet swap

    I drew duckmilk as a recipient for this swap, and knowing he has a forge and anvil I wanted to make a forging hammer. After seeing his collection (with some crafty help from fellow swappers and friends) I decided on a dogshead hammer, aka cutlers hammer or sawyers hammer. It's a weight forward...
  9. Devon's 2019 Mallet Swap

    So I had a lot of fun with this swap. Never made a mallet or an awl. So both were knew to me. So I present the Backyard Whammer. The woods: I made the mallet and awl from all salvaged wood. The black walnut is from a tree that was in my bosses yard and got hit by lightening and was dying. So I...
  10. H. O. Studley Infill Mallet

    Initially, I wasn't going to participate in the Mallet Swap. However, I came across a picture of the H.O. Studley infill mallet and decided I wanted to try and replicate it. The first question that came to mind is who is Henry O. Studley and why is he so important? It turns out that he was an...
  11. Rawhide and hdpe mallets

    I had been wanting to make myself a rawhide mallet for some time and when the mallet swap came up, I joined. Rawhide mallets are hard, but not hard enough to mar a project. I've seen them in use in forging for shaping hot, delicate pieces of steel. I went to Walmart and picked up some rawhide...
  12. Project 100! The bulls eye mallet for swap

    That's right, this is project 100 for me. I couldn't believe it either. I wanted to save the spot for a "special project" I am working on but then I thought, what could be more special then to show what I made for the swap for another wood worker and to celebrate all the great friends I have...
  13. New Mallets for the 2019 Mallet Swap

    THis was a really great swap for me. First I got a great Tungsten filled banger from HungryPacman which is perfect for dovetailing. Second I got to try a lot of new things, methods, techniques and woods. After making a number of mallets of various woods and handle styles I picked the best three...
  14. 2019 mallet swap - three items

    My entry for the 2019 mallet swap consisted of three hammers for Dave (KelleyCrafts). The biggest is a small sledge I handled using pecan. I'd been given the pecan log as firewood, so the handle was truly made from scratch. The next is a regular joiners mallet (not NEARLY as fine as most of...
  15. Mallet set for Mallet swap 2019

    I lurked myself into this years mallet swap - my first ever. I'm very gratefuel that they accepted me in as I'm from Norway - so international shipping was required to make this work. I made three mallets, one jointers malley, one brass journeymans mallet and one carvers malley. All handels...
  16. 2019 Mallet Swap

    Mallet swap just ended this past Friday and this beast is what I made. The head is made of purpleheart, hard maple, and padauk. The handle is made of hard maple, purpleheart, padauk, and walnut. I made this mallet so big that after gluing the handle and head together I wound up cutting another 4...
  17. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    I have this Dunlap Lathe: The tail stock has a dead center? How do I replace it with a live center? I tried backing it out by turning the hand crank. I assumed it would pop out, but does not and I cannot turn it further by hand. Do I just give the handle a good hammer wack? The head...
