Beautiful mallet Klaus.

The rubber will certainly absorb the vibrations and shock forces.

Nice, I hope it helps, and stands up.

I want a set of these. I threw mine together from a cedar fence post and ripped 2×4 with some glue and coat hangar wire. But yours are works of art compared to my stone aged crude wood pounders. If ever you have any you don’t want…

My mallet is a idea that I have been kicking around for some time as I have been having a pain in my right arm and shoulder .
The idea is to reduce the shock feedback from the mallet head to the handle by making a handle with a open section and adding rubber strips between the mallet head and the handle .
The head is held in place by the usual taper joint and two tension screws . I hope this will work as I think but time will tell how this experiment stands up in real use .
Made from oak,mahogony,maple and walnut .
