I decided to make a hammer for my girlfriend for her birthday as she did not have one.
It isn’t meant to be used as an everyday framing hammer, but she certainly does use it and love it.
The flecking in the WO between the letters is beautiful, first photo. I shaped the handle first on the bandsaw and then on the belt sander, then finally by hand. Because her name, Hannah, is a palindrome, her name can be read from either side of the hammer, pretty cool.
Made of White oak and black walnut
Finish Boiled Linseed Oil
