Blue Spruce Toolworks Mallets are finely crafted, extremely durable, and may be the last mallets you ever need. The heads are machined from figured maple that has been infused with a hard resin to completely fill the cellular structure of the wood. This helps prevent the crushing of the face grain which is so common with most round, wood mallets. It also increases the density of the wood by almost 80% resulting in a perfect balance, bounce and weight for most mallet work. Our round mallets excel in chopping out dovetails, carving and lightly guiding your most precise work. The Blue Spruce round mallet is available in two sizes and was Awarded Popular Woodworking's 2009 Best New Tools Award. They are also suitable for smaller scale mortise and tenon work but select our Rectangular Joiner’s Mallets for heavier work. They are the finest rectangular mallets available and are perfect for mortise and tenon work as well as assembly and any task where you need a bit of persuasion.
