A thought: Several years ago I made myself a rectangle headed wood mallet of medium weight. When I built it my idea was for use with chisels. The face is fairly flat and square. It turns out that I use that mallet more often than my others which are cylindrical and heavier. The head shape works great in tight spots and the weight is ideal for better control. Now a heavy mallet certainly has its place especially for mortise work but that little mallet really gets used a lot for a lot of different things.
