I had a cutoff from the walnut slab I used for the river table and it was a good size for the head of the mallet, Hence the sap wood on the back end of the head. I used a scrap of reclaimed maple for the handle and a scrap of maple for the face. And no, Those aren’t mahogany dowel pins holding the head together I cheated and glued and screwed it together and plugged the holes.

Very pretty.

The maple should make it last a long time too.
