Picture of Monogram Mallet

Whilst antiquing I found this small monogram stamp with the initials ‘’J.L.M.’’. For 3 quid, I decided to pick it up and use it to mark my work as my name begins with a J. I find that metal stamps or punches are always a bit tedious to use, especially because they require an additional tool to leave an impression. They also require the use of both hands. Time to rectify this with a Monogram Mallet !

Salut Astuces de Trentes Secondes!
En fait, c'est la couleur naturelle du bois, j'ai simplement ajouté un peu d'huile minérale!

Cool idea, and nice build, but I'm here for the epoxy tip. #lifechanged.
