Why we love this product

Bang on trend.

We adore the detailed, clever, witty designs of this maker’s furniture and sculptural objects. These witty mallets make a quirky, humorous conversation-starting accessory. Some of his mallets are designed to be used but these two are purely decorative pieces, not to be packed in the camping bag.

Max McCance makes the wooden mallets using offcuts of wood from other furniture projects, so a clever way of ensuring that valuable timber is not wasted. They are well weighted, and satisfying to pick up and hold. The detailing is, as with all the maker's work, finished to a very high standard.

These fun, humorous mallets would suit a landing window sill or study shelf. Perhaps place a mallet in the same room as the AUTHOR’s Own Hailes Spotty Stool.

What our customers say...

I ordered a gorgeous pinch bowl for a girlfriends 40th and it arrived as promised; beautiful wrapped with a lovely personalised note and information on the piece and who made it. Everything was of such high quality and elegantly put together….my friend absolutely loved it and really appreciated the effort I had gone to. I didn't tell her it wasn’t quite all done by me!
