MAKE A MALLET



A mallet is a type of hammer which is generally used for striking another tool, such as a chisel or punch. They are also used for assembling furniture and machine parts, forming metal and pounding stakes into the ground.


Mallet heads are made of many different materials, including wood, plastic, rubber, soft metal (like brass or lead) - even leather!


Participants choose from a selection of woods for handles and heads, and use hand tools to fashion a mortise and tenon joint to secure the two parts. The result is a useful wooden mallet which will last for many years.


This workshop can be presented as a single “mini” activity for birthday parties, or multiple “mini” workshops for fairs and festivals.
