Joiners Mallet

On the twelfth day of Christmas, my true love broke with tradition and gave me twelve joiners joining. Unfortunately, they all needed mallets. Luckily, we had this Joiner’s Mallet project ready to go.

    Another merry XMas from Austria. This was an exciting year and full of interesting projects. Every time I am here I am glad, I stumbled over this site. Referring to today’s themes I can proudly tell You, I did 2 carrying totes, one clock and another 2 boxes. Just as pretty as I am able to, but everytime it is getting better.
    Now I make a sort of occasional table; in the original it is done with electrical saws and routers, but I do it the traditional way I learned from Paul and use handsaw, chisels, planes. You have more feelings for that.
    Oh – nearly forgot – I did some candleholders too. Cut a branch (diameter about 100 mm to 150mm) into about 45 mm slices, make a hole for the candle at the top, THEN make a hole for some decoration along the axis of the slice (I put really small xMas bowls in it, glued on a glittering string, this is glued in a hole I made from the middle of the candle hole). Some finishing and – done.
