LITTLE TAPPING MALLET

A little tapping mallet I just finished and will go to a friend and I hope to deliver it personally on our holiday .
The little guy is almost exactly like the one I have and I just love having it on the bench to tap stuff with a gentle touch and it sure beats using a steel hammer and wooden block.
It is made from hickory for the laminated handle and jatoba for the grip with a walnut butt end .The head is maple and a hardwood of unknown type with leather facings .
I mounted two penny’s one American and one Canadian for good luck and a symbol of friendship .

Very nice mallet you made there Kiefer. It reminds me of the Knew Concepts coping saw. Well done.

I love your mallets Klaus, and this little sweetie is so delicate!
Not all jobs around the shop benefit from a " bigger hammer".
