When I started here at Cool Tools this piece puzzled me. What could be done with a bunch of concave depressions? The answer is lots! Dapping Blocks are used to make uniform curved pieces of different sizes. The Navajo used this style of tool to make beads and “Navajo pearls” out of silver. Our dapping sets come with everything needed for any range of experience ranging in price from $8.70 for a basic wooden set to $145 for complete deluxe set, depending on if you are just trying for the first time or looking for a complete set.
