Bullet hammer 20mm Madsen
War is not the answer…
Another one of my strange ideas!
One day some years ago I visit the local scrap yard, and in the brass container it looked like a war had been going on in Copenhagen, there were full of bullets… So I picked up a 20 mm big bastard, and read one of my nicknames was written on it ‘Madsen’, so of course I had to bring one home.
The other day I finally had an idea for a peaceful purpose.
An old table leg of palisander, found in the street and this bullet – and it became a wonderful little brass and wood wooden hand plane hammer (so I can tap gently but with a fair weight behind).
Hope it can be to inspiration, it might not end the wars, but it could mean a useful purpose for something useless
