I made this mallet for 2 contests on Youtube by WOmadeOD & WoodbyWright, It is made from Maple with an oak handle,colored veneers and beech dowels.I chamfered all the edges and finished it with a mineral oil and beeswax mix finish. I found it difficult to clamp it up with the veneers moving easily. I had to drill the holes for the holes for the dowels free hand so one dowel is out of alignment. It is my first mallet build so I am happy with it for a first attempt!
I made a video for my BCDesign Channel please watch thumbs up and subscribe if you like it!

Not only sturdy it’s also good looking piece.
