Carpenter's Wooden Mallet Handmade, Square Shaped Head Slightly Arched, Square Shaft Exposed above Head, Round Shaped 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. 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.
