I want to know if there is any specific trick of the trade when making a caulking mallet.
It is to be used for caulking log houses and not for boats. It is not going to be the perfectly tuned tool for a full time caulker but more of a tool to get the odd caulking job done now and then.
I have an old rotten house caulking mallet to take measurements from but I want to check if there is anything I should know before I start. I have for instance no clue about how the hoops are held in place.
