I started with a tapered maul; it works for me.

I like a rawhide mallet.  But there is something to be said for a tool you are comfortable with.

The 'answer' is the same as for that other question - "what is the best lure for walleyes?"

It's the one you will use.

I have a Stohlman mallet I picked up for a song on Craigslist, and I absolutely love it.  I have never tried a maul, however. It looks like it would be easier to bevel edges with a maul, since your strikes don't have to be dead on like they do with a mallet.  I'm not an experienced tooler, though, so I'm not very fast at beveling anyway.  I think a maul is probably faster, but you probably need to be pretty experienced to go that fast.
