This is my 2014 mallet swap entry

The head is curly maple, pecan and walnut.
The handle is pecan and spalted maple.
It has cherry wedges.
I made the inlay from curly maple and walnut with the incra system.
The faces are leather covered glued on with hide glue in case they need to be replaced.
finished with wipe on Polly.
This is the only photo I took so I hope that the recipient post some more photos
