Mallets, a still life.

Two carving mallets, and one general purpose mallet.

The two carving mallets are turned maple. These were made for doing the low relief carving; they are more for tapping than pounding.  They are both sections of a 3″ maple blank from Rockler that was supposed to be a bench screw but it was too hard to work with.

I use the large mallet (top right) all of the time. It was one of my first projects several years ago when I got back into wood working.   It is a simple laminated design in beech, tough as nails and delivers a fairly stout blow.  Goes well with a mortice chisel.
