I’m currently trying to make a plaque to put on the wall in the shop, it’s for my grandpa’s hammer that my grandma gave me for being a pallbearer in his funeral. I’ve made the plaque, routed the profile edge, just have to decide how I want to hang the plaque on the wall. But that just depends what I feel like doing there, the real problem I’m having is I can’t think of an easy way to attach the hammer and make it look good and without doing any damage to the hammer itself. If anyone’s got any ideas I’m all ears! Thanks for reading.
Ok, here’s the hammer and plaque (unfinished).
P.S. Just a bit of history about it. Grandma gave all 6 pallbearers a hammer she’d found from his shop. She decided to give this to me because being his only grandson, we were VERY close. And with this hammer, she felt it was the ultimate persona of him, he always had to upgrade everything, this the routed grips he made on the handle of this hammer. Every time I see that it makes me think of all the little things he had to add to all his tools and projects and makes me smile.
Thanks again for looking and all the input, I’m going to sleep on it before I finally decide what to do with it.
