Default It is That Time Once Again

Last night was our annual December meeting at the NW Woodworkers Assoc.
In the spirit of the season I presented the members with something useful for their toolbox.

I don't mind if other members disagree with my comments.
I don't profess to know everything, and I may learn something new.

I wondered if you built that jig for just one mallet . . .
Good on you Herb! Nicely done. As always!

I wondered who would be the first to figure that out, good one.

Those are BEAUTIFUL!

Now I want to make one to pound noodles...
I know, you are asking, "WHaaAAA?" So I will explain.
I like to cook strange, yet delectable things to eat.

One of my quirky passions is pasta.
Buckwheat noodles is one of those weird things. Anyone into Asian noodles will tell you that buckwheat soba (similar to ramen) is a unique, and yummy thing to enjoy.
But kneading buckwheat soba dough is a PITA. It is so tough, that I have to put it in a zip-lock gallon baggie, and then put it on a towel on the floor, and stomp it barefoot for about a half hour to make it mallable enough to run through my pasta machine. We are talking a HARD lump of dough.

A cool (and BEAUTIFUL) mallet like that looks like it would make my noodle pounding much easier on my poor widdle arthritic joints.
Ah, another project for my, "I want to make this!" list!!!

Good job. Lucky people in your Woodworking group.

Herb the first think I thought of when I saw all those mallets was a percussion band playing pails, buckets, wooden blocks,etc.

Seriously, nice work. Technically I'm in the NW. Did you make one for me?

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.
