This was one of the two things I made this weekend. This hammer is made with a hickory handle and a walnut head. Its the “mistery hammer” as shown by Roy Underhill in one of his TV shows.
I was over at his shop this weekend and we made this along with a bow saw (which I will post later when I finish shaping the second arm..).
This was challenging to make as it requires very precise layout and cutting. there is the illusion of a dovetail on each side of the face and the handle is split in three, producing three thru-tenons. I probably will card-scrape it smooth and finish it with wax.
