Instant Mallet

Martha Stewart Living, September 2003

Cabinetry projects often require a rubber-headed tool so marks don't appear as you tap wood into place. Save toolbox space by converting a hammer into a mallet in seconds. For a standard-size hammer, slip a 3/4- or 1-inch rubber tip, called a boot (they are usually used on furniture legs and are available at hardware stores), onto the hammerhead.
