This is a badge bit (BB) that is part of the PEA curriculum. Completing this BB is part of getting the sand badge in Roundwood Working.

A good solid mallet is one of the first tools any woodworker should own. Even if it is incredibly simple, it is going to be vital to future projects. While a larger maul style mallet isn’t practical for the apartment dweller, a smaller hand-held compound mallet will be just right!

To complete this BB, the minimum requirements are:
Must use only hand tools.
Form the mallet from a greenwood head and dry wood handle.
Craft a usable compound mallet.
Should be crafted using manual hand tools.

To document and become certified for this BB provide photos or video (less than 2 minutes) showing the following:
- Show the two pieces of wood and the tools you intend to use
- Show the pieces carved, but prior to attachment
- Show the finished mallet in a way that displays it is solid and usable
