Introduction: Thors Hammer,

 thors hammer, made of scrap wood.
i made a cardboard one a while back and decided to make this staight afterwards, however i got sidetracked by life and have now made it.
basic recipe to cook this up, a block of wood, wooden pole, chrome tape, leather, drawing pins, leather sheet. and 22mm cap end and brass olive.

first i cut the pole down and cut the wood to size
then using a 22mm wood drill bit i drilled into the block and glued with a hot glue gun. to add stability i added a screw through the block into the handle.
then i used sandpaper to smooth the handle and rough up the head.
covered the head in chrome tape concealing any edges by rubbing with a dry cloth.
covered the handle in leather glueing and pinning to hold in place. I kept the pins in and pinned the opposite side for detailing as it looked cool.
used a brass olive and drilled a hole in a copper cap end to finish off the hilt
finaly put a screw into a purse/bag strap and screwed through the cap endinto the wooden handle.
done
the best avengers item ive made yet.

Nice project. Is it heavy? Wouldn't standard wood glue have been better, it would've flowed around the shaft creating bigger contact area?
The young one seems to enjoy it. :)
As a side note. According to the original legend Thors hammer has short shaft because Loki interrupted the craftsman while making it.

yes I know the legend, but the dwarfs still won odins favour by saying it was intentionally a short handle so it could be stored in thors clothing.
