You didn't say if you have a lathe. If you do, the mallet is an easy
spindle project and the marking gauge is the center piece from the bowl
bowl you just made with a hole drilled in it, a dowel in the hole and a
thumbscrew in the side to hold the dowel. A sharpened wire brad through
the dowel finishes the marking gauge.

hot glue into hole. After the head cracks from dying: Reglue with hot
My very handy western forest sweet cherry mallet was made this way.
