Here are a pair of mallets I made a number of years ago that have gotten a lot of use.
The heads are cocobolo and the handles are boxwood.
The handle on the hammer style was turned to allow a comfortable grip at either the bottom or top.
On the other handle I got lucky that the “stain” ran right through the center making some visual interest.
The handles are held in with blind wedges and no glue, and there is no finish, but they do buff up to a nice satin sheen.
