Nice looking tool Herb, just my sense worth two cents may be the mallet might strike with an oomph if the head were to be heavier.
I suggest some extra weight in the cavities made in two small center pieces next to the handle.(depending on what it's being used for)

Just cruisin' through and the post caught my eye. Nice work. Mallets are fun.

Here's one I did a while back.

This would have been the week that I'd have finished chewing thru the restraints...
If only new layers hadn't been added....

Too late. It's holding up well though.
