Scrap Project: Small Mallet

I use a lot of 2 x 2s in projects and have cutoffs in abundance. So, I came up with the Chief’s Shop Small Mallet that can either be used as a crab mallet (for cracking shells), or a small meat mallet (for tenderizing or flattening cuts of meat).

You’ll need a 5/8-inch round dowel and a 1/4-inch round dowel as well. Click on the image below to access the plan.

Be sure to e-mail me with any questions and let me know what you think –

Don’t forget to like Chief’s Shop on Facebook! At 500 likes someone will be selected to receive a Kreg Mini Pocket-Hole Jig Kit or a box of 500 pocket hole screws.

Make Some Sawdust!
