In this Instructable, you will learn how to set up and etch your name or other custom phrase onto the wooden handle of a tool (in this case a hammer) using a Trotec 80W Laser etching/cutting machine.

Step 1: Materials & Tools list

• Wooden handled tool - in this case a "Task Force" hammer from Lowes.
• Membership at Tech Shop and Laser SBU class certification (to get access to the laser etching machine).
• calipers or ruler to measure the location of the "etchable" area on your tool handle.
Excellent idea. We have a rack in our tool store with three different sized hammers labled small problems, medium problems and huge problems!
Nice idea! And I love the name of your hammer :)
