This is a hammer I cut my name into with my scroll saw a few years back. I made a bunch for custom orders. The idea came from a Patrick Spielman book. In the book the plan was to make a jig to hold the hammer to stop it rolling if the head wasn’t on the table. I just took a piece of plywood that was big enough to make a larger table for the saw, drilled a small hole in it and double sided taped it to the saw table. Hammer was from the discount store for $5.00.
Makes a nice nameplate.
Was very slow to cut.
IIRC I used a #5 PGT blade.

Thanks for looking,

I like the look of that Mike.
Great idea for a present or for a retired hammer.

I like it! Though I am thinking if I did it I may fill the gaps in with colored epoxy. But still, very nice.
