Hickory was used for the head and handle with four birch pins, hickory and maple wedges to tighten handle to head. All adhesives were epoxy. Copper tubing was inserted into the handle with CA glue.

That is a good looking, functional mallet. No chance of it breaking. The pins are a nice touch. Is the head a single piece or 2 sides or something else?

P.S. Thanks for posting in-progress pictures

Very nice buddy! The pins were a great idea, makes it strong and just looks good.
