I've had my beech mallet for many years, and I recently noticed for the first time hairline shakes in the end grain of the head. Can anyone tell me, is this the beginning of the end, or is there something I can do to save it? Being a trained furniture maker (some time ago) I feel I ought to know the answer myself, but...
(As to WHY it's cracking, I doubt it's got 'too dry' as my workshop isn't heated. Just finer weather lately here in Sussex than the storms of February...)
Thanks for any ideas.
