I finally did it, I built a new shop mallet. I have posted the build video on my YouTube channel. The location of the video is: https://youtu.be/fpBVwX9f9cs Hope you enjoy it. The mallet is built out of walnut and maple.

That is a beautiful mallet. My experience using walnut in a mallet head was not good. The walnut is not hard enough and beat out very quickly. Hard maple seems to work pretty well. I did glue leather faces on mallets to protect the wood it is striking.
