glue can be any wood glue such as titebond (I, II, III) Elmers yellow glue, or similar. I use Titebond I mostly.

Oak should be ok for the mallet, and the head should be hefty, usually if you’ll laminate 3 layers of 3/4” you’ll get a rough width of 2 1/4” for the head. rest of the measurements are really personal, and are up to you to choose, just make sure it has some weight to it. 3×5 is a good size, but draw it out and see how it looks/feels to you.

and most important – welcome to Lumberjocks! :) sounds like you are one already.
