Made this out of spalted maple that was right on the edge of workability. Had it about 2/3 the way done—-sanding/shaping—-and it BLEW apart while I was using a file on it. I took a pic, closed the shop, and went inside for the night! LOL This morning, I glued it back together and finished it this afternoon and it turned out well. This hammer is very very fragile and is a show piece only. Will look nice hanging on my shop wall. Finished with wax only. This is the last spalted maple hammer I will make as it is just too tedious and nerve-wracking. Thanks for the looks and comments.
