Epic Failure

03-02-2017 09:55 PM by madts | 3 comments »

I posted this project some time ago, and this beautiful hammer bit the dust. Not from overuse ,but from my missteps during construction. As you can see the head broke off where thee handle attached to the head. Two reasons for this. The two pieces of cherry were not as straight grained as they should have been. Secondly the spacer piece with the half-round in it .was too short. I think it should have been extended at least 1” from the hammer head. So back to the shop and try again. It was a nice hammer with very little rebound comming through the handle. —Madts.
