Carpenter's Handmade Wooden Mallet With a Barreled Shaped Head.

 

Wooden mallets are usually used in carpentry to knock wooden pieces together or to drive dowels or chisels. A wooden mallet will not deform the striking end of a metal tool, as most metal hammers would. It also is used to reduce the force driving the cutting edge of a chisel, giving better control.

During the bronze age, around 3000 BC, the ability to shape soft metals allowed the next advance in hammers. By shaping the head of the hammer with a hole in the middle, called an eye, tapered wooden handles could be slid into the hammer. This made hammers more durable by eliminating bindings.
