  1. Pound-a-Peg Toy

    I built two of these children's toys recently. One is for my son, who turns one today. The other will be a gift for whomever. Its easy to build more than one when you're in the mode. You simply pound the pegs down, then flip the bench over and pound them back the other way. I remember using this...
  2. a couple of mallets

    I made these mallets a few months ago but never got around to posting them. I am slowly getting into handtools and it seemed like the right project. It took me most of a day. The mortises were a little challenging but the real challenge was turning the pegs to the perfect diameter. Wood...
  3. Distiller's Mallets

    Made a mallet for a friend that works at a distillery. It's for pounding the bungs into the barrels. (Plus, if you are making something simple, and have enough scraps, why not make two?) Made from tight grain oak scraps and copper wedges. Signature Montana quarter. Head is 2 3/4" x 3" x 4...
  4. A set of swingers for surprise swap

    Greetings all, Here is a set of mallets that I recently made for LJ clieb91 for the Shop Made SURPRISE Tool Swap - Fall/Winter 2016. All the handles are made out of some walnut that was a left over from my countertops, but the heads are all made of different materials. The small one -...
  5. Oak Bench Mallet and a Walnut & Red Oak Mortising Mallet

    One thing always leads to another in Fritter City, my shop. I read GraveDiggers review of Grammercy Holdfasts. I felt my credit card throbbing as I read the review. A pair arrived in no time. But, an old rubber mallet didn't seem to match the class of the Grammerys. So, matching dados were cut...
  6. My windmill 10 blade 36 inch

    This windmill I made is made from exterior grade plywood and has a redwood body for it will last outdoors for many years. It took me a few days to make ,and it is finished with marine spar varnish. I painted the tips red and white. I put roller skate bearings in the hub so is rotates freely in...
  7. Jimmy DiResta Style Oak Mallet

    Its "March Mallets" at the NJ Woodturners so I'm making a few different styles. Good Ole Jimmy DiResta on YouTube was the inspiration for this one. Took about 3 hours to make. Got the brass rings on line. Finished with Formbys Boiled Linseed Oil. Great weight and feel to this simple mallet...
  8. Tenoned Mallets - Small but Hefty (Twice as Heavy as the Regular Ones)

    I made these mallets http://lumberjocks.com/projects/19427 but for some jobs I prefer a more hefty mallet. So I designed and made the tenoned mallets. The mallets shown here measure 8 ½" to 9" long (the heads are about 2 ¼" in diameter) but each weighs 14 oz, as compared to the 8 oz of a...
  9. My mallets

    A few of my maple and walnut mallets with cherry handles.
  10. 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...
  11. Breast Cancer Ribbon Pen

    I was in Las Vegas and met Ken of http://www.kallenshaanwoods.com/servlet/StoreFront and picked up this kit while I was there and enjoyed talking with him and maxman400. They are both members of my other favorite site. I made it for my wife in honor of her Mom who was very important to her...

    One finished with mineral oil, the other unfinished. Good defence weapons in the shop :-)
  13. Solid Head Mallet with Maple Head & Ipe Handle

    I had some really nice maple to work with so I decided to create a solid head mallet with an ipe handle. It's a pretty large mallet and it has a great substantial feel. I used traditional woodworking techniques to build it, and I created a video documenting each step. Please check it out if...
  14. Mallets from cutting board off fall

    Cutting board off fall makes for a good mallet now and then. Walnut dowels were purchased on Ebay and makes for a great handle. Natural Watco Danish oil was used as a finish and I may add wax later.
  15. scrap wood - jointer's mallets

    having access to lots of scrap wood is a definite advantage for the frugal woodworker! with a little time, lots of elbow grease, and some sweat i was able to make these two beautiful jointer's mallets. i hand planed all the pieces, and cut them to size with my table saw. the heads are made of...

    This is my newest addition to my mallet collection. I made dead blow mallets for my brother, dad and myself just a month ago for christmas. it was made to mimic the carpenters mallet from a year ago. the construction is still the same except this time I hollowed out the center of the each...
  17. Wooden Mallet Set

    I got the idea for these mallets from Steveinmarin and Woodworking for Mere Mortals, which is a woodworking channel and blog I have come to love over the past couple of years. I found myself needing a mallet and had some scrap wood so i started on the larger one and thought, "why stop there?"...

  19. Marketplace Classifieds
    I don't know if anyone has any but I am wanting to make some projects with Osage Orange, specifically I want some mallets. I don't have a lathe so I am wanting to see if I could get some branches in the 3-4" diameter at about 10-12" long. If anyone has some they would like to get rid of please...
  20. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    I've never really given much thought to hammers in the past, but recently I acquired a few different types and it made me wonder why a particular weighted and shaped hammer is better for a certain trade/task than another style of hammer. Isn't it just a weight with a handle? To artisans of...
