So many of you guys make these I am always saying I need to make one myself. When my wife said it would be nice to have a hammer to smash croutons I finally got it done. The handle is made from a branch of dogwood a neighbor gave me a few years ago, the head from a small log of oak I have had forever kicking around the shop. This project convinced me I need a bigger lathe! With a max of 13 ½ inches the handle for me is too small for work in the shop but for my wife the right size. While I could make the handle from stock and shape it I find it easier with my wrist to have a round handle.
