This Hammer handle was a piece of red oak saved from the firewood pile. The hammer head was given to me by Dad, he said that it was my grandfathers, as was the spokeshave. I used the spoke shave to whittle the wood down to size and shape. I coated the handle with 4 coats of Minwax Spar Urethane.
I know this project is not anywhere near the talent on LJ’s, but it is significant to me. I broke my thumb the first Monday in July. This is the first thing that I have accomplished since then. It felt SO GOOD to finally accomplish something!!
Hope you enjoy.
