Some woodworkers prefer a traditional Joiner's mallet style with angled square faces over the round carver's mallet style. Blue Spruce Toolworks offers two of the finest mallets available today. The head of this mallet is made from curly maple that has been infused with a hard resin which adds weight and makes the wood incredibly tough and durable. It hits solid and is not bouncy. One face is the bare, infused wood while the other side is faced with thick leather. The leather side is great for assembling joinery or hitting chisels where you want a slightly softer but highly controlled contact. The handle is nicely shaped and the wide chamfers give a comfortable grip with maximum orientation feedback. It is available in Beech, Hickory or other custom woods.
