Step 1: Step One Making the Head
I made 6 pieces of plastic that are 5 * 3 and I used them for the base for the hammer. I used a laser cutter but anything that can cut through plastic will work. I used pieces of plastic that were a 1/4 of an inch. I then wrapped them in duck tape to keep them together. I then put 16 washers on each long side of the head and wrapped them in more duck tape. Then I put 8 washers on the Side I wanted to use to hammer and wrapped in more duck tape to hold in place.
Step 2: Step 2 Attaching It to the Stick
I used a stick that has a diameter of 1.25 inch's. I used a drill bit that Had a diameter of 1.25 inch's and I drilled a hole into the hammer head. After I Drilled the hole I inserted the stick and hot glued it in the hammer head. I recommend having your stick about a foot and a half or in that ball park.
Step 3: Step 3 Finished
Now you have a home made hammer for under 10 dollars!
