Hey guys i was thinking about crafting one of those nifty little dovetail hammers that david barron uses and sells. Not that im cheap….cause i am…...but i like makin my own stuff better. Anyway was wondering if anybofy has made one on here before, and what were your dimensions. Mainly om interested in how big the handle swell turned out to be. Im pretty sure 1 1/4 brass stock would do the trick right? Thanks for any input you may shavings!

He makes the heads from 32mm or 1-1/4” brass rod, the handle is about 40mm (1-9/16”) at the heel, and 16mm at the head.
