Intro
It’s a wonderful feeling of excitement to use beautiful hammers you made yourself leaving gorgeous marks, or completing that special process that bring each unique piece to life.
For some of us, hammers are the heart of the functional and practical side of our making process. It’s a wonderful feeling of excitement to use beautiful hammers you made yourself leaving gorgeous marks, or completing that special process that bring each unique piece to life. Learn how to design and create the hammer shape you have in mind whether it’s a ball end, cross peen, riveting hammer or somerthing else more unique.  

Made from tool steel, each hammer head will be ground and filed to perfection. Student will forge an appropriate oval hole in the head for the correct seat and mounting of a solid handle-to-head union, then they will be polished and oil hardened to withstand a life time of use and wear. In the end, handles and heads with be properly fitted with a traditional time-old technique, during this step, you will learn about the application of basic wood working techniques using your jewelers tools.

Open to any level of student with a keen interest in detail and patience. It requires students who are interested / comfortable using an angle grinder, and doing lots of filing.
