Cutting and carving wooden mauls

On Friday March 21, 2014 we started to cut and carve pieces of maple trees about a foot long each into wooden mauls for hammering wooden and plastic chisels when we are practicing wood carving.IMG_0212

 

A wooden maul is only needed when you have a chisel that does not have a metal back.  When you have a chisel with a metal back, you hit it with a hammer.  The new chisels we got you use a maul for.
