Short Work Mallet, Philadelphia Claw Foot
This short mallet was a fun project I undertook one Cole winter day in the shop. I had been wanting to try out a Philadelphia claw food carving, and this was the result.
The mallet measures 6.5" long, with a mallet head of 1"x4". Its size makes it perfect for more delicate work, perhaps for a jeweler or doll furniture enthusiast. I might also suggest it makes a great decorative piece:)
The mallet was crafted from reclaimed wedge, poplar and marblewood, and sports a fixed head for stability.
