Some great mallets here. I think I’m going to try and make the one Ted posted it seems to be shaped nicely for several different grip options.

However, I love Smitty’s and it looks like a fun turning exercise.

Here is what I’ve been using. Made before having a lathe. Firewood Red Oak, inspired by Asian carving mallets I’ve seen. Very simple but handy, you can hold it anywhere. Roughed out with my machete and jointed with hand planes.
