• Hammer Head (this one is a French Cross Pein, hand forged out of tool steel!)
• Wood • approximately 1.5” x 2” x 12” (I used TulipWood mostly because I had it, but I would recommend Hickory for it’s strength and flexibility)
• Tung Oil
• Scrap steel (for wedge)
• Slow cure epoxy
I made it at TechShop! For more about TechShop, check out their site: http://www.techshop.com
Step 1: Cut Material to Size with Band Saw
• Use the band saw to cut your material a 1.5" x 2" x 12" block.
• Next draw the profile of the hammer handle and use the band saw rough out the shape.
