Topic tags/keywords: 2019malletswap mallet swap

Welcome to the 2019 mallet swap. I know we just did a mallet swap last year but some of us didn’t get in on it. If this is your first swap glad you are here along with everyone else. This will be my first swap to take the lead on but my third swap to participate in. If you have any questions feel free to PM me or ask the group.

Object of the swap is to make a mallet of ay size and design you wish to send to your recipient. Hammers are welcome as well. Most also make a little extra goody to send with the main item but the extra isnt required.

Participation in the thread weekly is a must. As you are on more and more you will find we are a great group and are fun to chat with. Doesnt have to be swap related you can just post saying im here and on track if you want.

Dont post your project in the projects section till after reveal date and your recipient has a chance to post a pic here. Use 2019malletswap for your project post so we can find it.

To sign up:

Send your

Lumberjocks screen name

I am going to be just watching for a while at least. The last mallet swap was one of my favorite swaps so if I get my shop organized by the sign up date, I may be a last minute entry.

BTW, You might want to add hammers as well. We have some people who do some metal work and in the last swap, I got a really cool one.

I will be sending in an email. Kitchen cabinets finished, farmhouse table almost done and three drawers for a friend done and installed. So I have some time.

I would make the ship date on Monday and reveal Friday. Everyone will be going crazy with a weekend in between.

Yep, hammers work. I made what I thought were decent hammers in a mallet swap. A little Damascus plane rapper and a bigger happier made from scratch.

Some cool stuff should come out of this. Mallets are a pretty simple project so challenge yourself for sure. That’s what it’s all about.

Looking forward to it.

Everyone should recieve theirs by Saturday so we can reveal then. Monday shows to be veterans day and post office is closed. I could push ship date to 11/9 and complete photos to 11/8 then reveal Sat. 11/16. What do yall think?

Probably not, but if construction has started on my new shop by the sign-up date, I may jump in. I mean how tough can it be to stick a dowel through a 4×4?
