Final weight: 17 oz.
Woods are ipe & maple
Finished with blonde shellac. Normally I’d use linseed oil on a mallet but didn’t want the maple to turn bright yellow.
There’s a little more info my blog about glue up.

Looks great Rick. The procedure was interesting. Looks like you have the weight distributed nicely.

Awesome mallet! Great shape and wood colors and the handle is really pretty. It should serve you well around the shop. Great work!
