Lignum vitae wood carvers mallet, plywood faced rigid insulation - Review

Categories: Wood Shoe Rack Plans | Author: admin 03.08.2015

Like many before me, I have just finished making a carvers mallet from a lignum vitae bowl.
Yes it's great wood for the job but I have always tried to ensure any furniture I have made or turnings have remained scratch free and the idea of belting a chisel with such a nice piece really goes against the grain.

The 2 in this photo, I made years ago and they've had a lot of use.Both have lignum heads and I like the feel of the smaller one. If you watch a carver working on a 6 foot piece, and in the early stages of roughing out with a inch and a half gouge, belting is most definitely involved!
