The Appalachian Heritage Woodshop

Burl Mallet Project

I use mauls, mallets and wooden hammers in my shop frequently. And as they wear out I look for replacements. This lead me to think of the Appalachian people of several generations ago and how they would find a replacement. Since burls are much harder than straight grained wood it was the preferred material for mauls and mallets. I was discussing this with a woodworking friend when he mentioned someone that had an old mallet they found while disassembling a log house. I contacted them and we began to discuss burls and mallets. The result was the basis for the episode of The Appalachian Heritage Woodshop burl mallet.
