I needed a mallet for finishing with a leather face and softer head. Much of this build is just like the last one with more carving and leather. Also, rather than building it out of firewood I am using a scrap of cherry that was perfect for this build. The handle is White oak and the leather was just a scrap from the shop. One can never have enough Mallets.

Here is the full build video. https://youtu.be/-yo9z73_pu0
