Making a wooden mallet is a traditional apprentice piece in which you can practice your mortise and tenons as well as shaping skills. It also provides you with a handmade and very useful tool to have in your toolbox for years to come. Paul shows you how to construct and finesse the shape of his favourite mallet design.
