A gentleman in San Antonio commissioned me to make a Thor-inspired trophy for his fantasy football league. I know next to nothing about football and even less about an imaginary version of football, but I do know wood.

The customer specified that the pommel be inlaid with the Greek letter Lambda. I guess that’s for his league or fraternity, or whatever.

The mahogany is insanely pretty, with beautiful ribbon figuring throughout. You can see a bit here on the hammer head, but it’s difficult for pictures to do it justice. Only in person can you really see the way it shimmers in the light.

More build details and pictures of the inlay process can be found here. Thanks!

Nice trophy, great beard. Look like a modern day Viking.
The inlay for the Greek letter looks great, nice work.

A mighty, mighty “adjustment” tool. That beard is coming along nicely. You better save one o your fine beard combs for your self. :)
