Mallets

Usually, when using a chisel, enough pressure can be applied by hand to cut effectively, but occasionally a few sharp raps with a mallet are required. Mallets come in a variety of weights and patterns. My preference is for a carver's type with a round head made from lignum vitae. Woodworkers' mallets with a rectangular head made from beech are just as effective, but not quite as nice to use.
