I’ve been needing a mallet to work with my chisels with and needing an excuse to use the lathe, end result was this. Although it isn’t obvious it has a number of coats of tung oil on it. No clue what the wood is besides pallet. It measures just over 3” at the widest and only has a slight taper. The handle is longer then most I’ve seen at the store to accommodate my wide hands.

Very nice looking mallet. Offhand it looks like it might be Ash.
Well done…a custom tool at the cost of a little time.

Thanks for the comments, it already has seen some minor use. The wood dents very little but seems like it will hold up fine in the long term.

Great looking Mallet. Glad that it’s holding up.
