This mallet head is made from 1 1/2” brass round stock cut to 2 3/4” long making it about 1 1/2 pounds (24oz). I drilled a 3/4” hole in the brass to epoxy the handle in. The handle is two pieces of bubinga glued together and turned on the lathe which was finished with 4-5 coats of polyurethane, and then glued into the brass and thats it. The mallet length is 7”.

Bubinga has become one of my favorite woods because it kinda resembles mahogany but I dont like how soft mahogany is and bubinga is a whole lot harder and more durable. Thanks for viewing, Andy.
