Epic Thor's Carving Mallet





Introduction: Epic Thor's Carving Mallet

I made this awesome carving mallet out of maple and teak. This build is inspired by Thor's hammer (Mjölnir).

Check out my YT channel


Step 1: Processing the Wood

Cutting the stock to rough hammer head size and gluing it together

Step 2: Mortise and Handle

Chiseling the mortise hole to fit the handle

Step 3: Design

Transferring the design via Indigo paper

Step 4: Carving

Carving the design using the different gouges and Rotary tool

And finishing the wood with Linseed oil

Step 5: Charring With a Candle

Best trick ever ;) :D

Step 6: Cutting the Tool Holder

My Brother made the holder and I carved the serpent Jörmungandr and Tolkien runes on It "made by Moris"

Step 7: Finish

I am very happy with this build, this is definitely my greatest artwork in my opinion :P

I love the wooden comb you did and saw the alternative use of the scroll saw in the video. You sure put a lot of work in your pieces but it's worth every minute, it shows in the end results.

Great job Beautiful carving. I would like to know where you found the pattern.

Yeah I may have to snag it so I can make a G Code file out of it. See how fast my CNC machine can duplicate it here.

I'm inspired! Fantastic carving and I love the burned detail. This is on my "project to try" list. Going to try the burning detail on some of the Harry Potter wands I'm Making for my son's 11th birthday party coming up this weekend (9 down, 3 to go). Thanks for Sharing your work here! -Eric in Orange County, CA

Thank you!....And I will send some photos when they are all done.

The charring didn't turn out as well. I needed more depth with the details. Party went well, kids loved them. I'm trying to figure out how to upload photos to comments section
