During the summer my son Teddy asked to help with some project he could finish before school started. We choose to add a Mallet. We had small bits of Bubinga and and Maple around from previous projects and he decided what he wanted to use for ea.
I got tired of using a standard claw hammer with my plastic handled chisels and since I was planning to buy some Stanley sweetheart metal on wood chisel handles was not a combination I wanted to do. It also helped that I missed the chisel on.
