Before my trip to The American School of French Marquetry I made a pair of twin veneer hammers for Patrick Edwards and Patrice Lejeune as a gift. I've made this design before, but added a brass ring around the tenon this time. The handle is again modeled after an antique French scraper handle. The wood is rescued Gabon Ebony and the finish is Shellac.
Here are a few extra photos:
I sanded the ebony up to 2,000 grit. Unnecessary, but fun.
Here are the hammers before applying shellac.
Extra hammer photo.
And here I am with Patrick (right) & Patrice (left)!
Thank you both for everything this past week, it was incredible! As an aside, I highly recommend attending The American School of French Marquetry – every minute there is worth an ounce of gold.
