Carpenter's Wooden Mallet Handmade, Square Head, Round Handle.

 

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. When it was found that metal could be shaped into a chisel, a wooden mallet really came into its own, used worldwide by masons trained to make a square and rectangular blocks of stone. The pyramids, later making more complicated shapes and also engravings on stone, all using the mallet and chisel. During the Byzantine, Greek and Roman periods, and perhaps before, artists began to carve using the mallet and chisel, Leonardo da Vinci and other famous artists could not have done their work without these tools. To the present day, masons are using the same method of shaping stone and wood as was used thousands of years ago.
