Some woodworkers prefer a traditional Joiner's mallet style with angled square faces over the round carver's mallet style. This 16 oz Joiner's mallet is perfect for dovetailing and driving smaller mortise chisels or other chopping needs. The head of this mallet is made from curly maple that has been infused with acrylic resin which adds weight and makes the wood incredibly tough and durable. The head is smaller than an equivalent standard wood mallet of the same weight giving much better visibility and control. It hits solidly 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 hickory handle is nicely shaped and the wide chamfers give a comfortable grip with maximum orientation feedback. This mallet will quickly become your go-to mallet and will last a lifetime of hard use. The handle is 8 inches long and the head is 4" long, 2¼" high and 2" wide.
