Don’t have a rubber mallet on hand? Convert a ball peen hammer into a mini mallet with an old rubber furniture foot.

Mallets are great for assembling furniture and tapping wood into place, without damaging the wood’s surface. Standard rubber mallets are in the 340g-510g range with heads that are too large to swing in tight spaces like cabinets. They are also a bit brutish for smaller projects.

Convert your small ball peen hammer into a mallet by adding a rubber furniture foot on one end. Now you have a mini mallet for tackling those tight spaces, all without buying another tool.
