Carving Mallets in Old Lignum Vitae


Beautiful strong carver’s mallets in antique Lignum Vitae, one of the hardest toughest timbers available. Ideal for this purpose in sets or a range of sizes, small, medium or large, subject to availability at the time. This lignum vitae comes from old vintage bowling balls it is really antique in age. The handles goes right through to the end of the ball for extra strength. Can also be made to order. Expect a few visible hairline checks, not unusual for lignum vitae of this age. These do not detract from their strength and beauty.
Fit for Purpose
Vintage lignum is hard to get hold of and increasingly expensive which of course impacts the cost. A lot of work also goes into making the mallets. The lignum vitae is recycled from antique vintage bowling balls.  Beautifully dense, smooth to the touch and full of character. The ergonomic design makes it a great fit in the hand with a good wallop and a great sweet spot. Made by someone who carves and has done stone masonry and therefore knows the requirements of their tools. Each of my wooden carving mallets is slightly different and unique. They are finished with oil, so the natural colour of the wood speaks for itself.  The Tommy Woodpecker Woodworks logo is on the top of the handle, so you know you have a Tommy Woodpecker Woodworks original. This tool in the right hands with normal carver’s use will last and last.  A great gift for a carver!
