I use a mallet nearly exactly like this, only it’s turned from Maple. It’s definately preferred (for me anyway) over a purchased mallet because it’s much lighter in the hand and more comfortable to use….especially being a girl. I find the store bought ones we have to be a bit heavy and tiring for my arm after a while. Nice one :)

That’s the best part about tuning your own. Mine is turned to fit my hand perfect. The weight is nice and I can see where store bought could be tiring. I also put a taper on the head to follow the arch of your arm as you swing. It works really well. Thanks for the comment.
