moulds and deckles
All moulds/deckles are constructed using top grade popular. They are triple coated with marine polyurethane. The ribs are evenly spaced to support the underlayment of stainless screen and in turn the finer brass screen surface or stainless top screen. The screens are sewn with a solid brass wire to the ribs. The brass shim is attached with solid brass nails, which secures the screen edge.
The fruit wood mallets are made with care by Ry Hook. The wood is slowly dried for two years. The mallet is coated with polyurethane and the handle is made of oak. The head diameter is 2.5 – 3 inches wide and about 5.5/6 inches long. The handle is 12″ long.
