How to make a mallet!

Green woodworker Doug Don from Heartwood Treen shows us how to make a useful camp tool in a few minutes using a green piece of wood, a saw and an axe.

A mallet can be made quickly if you have the right tools, and can make a lot of camp tasks much easier; from driving in stakes for shelters and pot hangers to hitting the back of an axe safely to split firewood down. It’s one of those items that you won’t truly appreciate how useful it is until you have one around!
