I made the simplest wooden mallet I could think of 🙂 And it’s made exactly for that: For knocking on wood with wood. Its a 40-cm-piece of homegrown oakwood with about 8-9 cm in diameter. Briefly carried alongside the bandsaw and heartily treated with a rasp. Attached a leather loop, done. I hope I’ll be able to start the project I made it for in may – god willing.
