Step 1: The Hammer
The is the first time I’m actually posting on the site, I usually just get inspiration from all the amazing artist/creators on here. Been long enough, so I finally decided to share my recent project: Thor’s hammer.
I’ve seen a bunch of different tutorials for building a Thor hammer, from wood/plastic/foam/etc.. But I wanted to share my slightly different approach. I went wood, but went solid rather than hollow. I made a block of six 6x10’S, then incased it from all sides with the then beveled pieces of wood I cut on the table saw. Only the sides were different wood (1/8th ply wood), same ply wood was used for the cap. Used a 1 1/4th dowel for the handle, about three inches deep. After wood filler was dried, sanded then prime/paint. After the clear coat dried, applied the weathered look with a damp rag and black acrylic paint. Few more clear coats, and it’s pretty much finished. I made a pretty plain looking hammer first time go round, then one with the proper inscriptions. Thank you for reading.
