Beautiful Mallet for Timber Framing or Woodworking
Made From Reclaimed Tropical Hardwood
All of the mallets are hand-turned from a variety of reclaimed tropical hardwood species found in the San Luis Valley of Costa Rica, where we have been working with the local community for the past 10 years. Due to the varying density and weight of any specific wood species, each mallet will vary in size, weight and length most suitable for the specific wood used. Sizes range from 16 to 18 inches in length, 2-1/2 to 3 inch head diameter and from 2.5 to 3 pounds. A good mallet will prevent fatigue and possible wrist injury that may arise from using a mallet not designed to meet the needs of heavy timber work with a framing chisel. The key is to hold the mallet lightly in hand and let the mallet do the work and not your arm or wrist. This requires the correct balance of handle thickness, length and weight. These mallets will provide years of daily use and due to the beauty of the wood, will even look beautiful on your mantelpiece once your timber framing or woodworking days are over.
