Made a few plane hammers for gifts for some friends. I had a machinist friend make the brass heads for me and I turned the handles from a few different sticks I had laying around: The handles are curly maple, walnut burl, curly ash, Brazilian rosewood!!, ash and cherry. The wooden hammer tips are threaded on and are made from desert iron wood.
I needed only a few but my machinist made me a dozen, not sure what I am going to do with that many hammers…
This was a fun project and each one has little subtleties which make it unique.
