Hi Richard.

I’m sure oak will be fine. I’d expect the oak to dent and deform quicker than your beech mallet. But not so much that you won’t get good use from it. I made one on the lathe from a piece of red oak firewood and it’s doing well. And worse case, you have to make a new one in a few years if you really beat on this one. I get a kick out of using tools I’ve made.
