When You Need Tools to Make Your Tools

We just bought made a new tool for our workshop—a deadblow mallet, to be used with chisels, wooden pegs, mortise & tendon joints, etc. This little beauty was constructed from red oak with a hard maple head, African Mahogany wedges, and faced with cowhide on the impact surface.

The mallet is a good in-between for when you need something more substantial than a plastic/rubber mallet, and a metal hammer is too much. There’s a hollow construction to the head with a handful of metal washers thrown in to get the dead blow effect. Great tools give great results.
