Good points and info Joseph. I will add that where the wood comes from in the tree can have a lot of influence on the longevity of the head as well. I have pieces of Maple and Oak I’ve picked up off the side of the road just because they had crotch sections. Pieces with tight, interlocking grain can last most of forever.

I would love to have some Osage to make some joiners mallets with. I can’t find any locally at all and haven’t found any online that is the size I need at reasonable prices. So if anyone has access to chunks of Osage Orange (Hedge) I’d love to get my hands on a box or two!
