I have only seen photos of Studley’s mallet and often wondered how it was made.
in the documentary, it explains how he made the brass head with sand casting.
two ways it could be reproduced:
1. is the lost wax process which would be the simplest and most economical.
2. is to make a multi-part mold for sand casting that requires a lot of milling and sanding
to get it down to show-worthy condition. and would be the most time invested as well as expensive.
it can be reproduced – just depends on your budget. (and research the copyright and patent info).
