    What would you recommend to oil these mallets with?

      I can’t imagine anything better than Uncle Billy’s Old Time Wood Oil! Get the protection you need, lasts a long time and you get that amazing pine tar smell that old wooden boats smell like!

    Great job, great video. Hopefully you’ll bring a few of the new ones, and/or some good old ones to the MBBS this March. I’ve got a little caulking to do and so I’m interested. I hope to see you then.

    Thanks for the video. At least history is recorded now and the art won’t be lost. Loved it.

    Very informative video. Happy to find out how he cut the slots. He should invest in a faceshield for his lathe and metalwork. Eyes of an old craftsman like his are too valuable to risk to injury.

    Another great video showing how a craftsman applies his trade and learned skills. Keep them coming. What great educational and entertaining information.

    Thanks for sharing. It is a treat to watch this craftsman. Did you see how his hands were beaten up? That said, I counted – all fingers remain in good working condition. The glimpses of the workshop were fascinating. Any chance of a shop video tour?

    I just love listening to these craftsmen talk while they build things or do what they do. Thanks.
