A place for me to display some of the varied projects that come out of my shop, as well as to "talk" about some of my experiences working with wood.

Hammer Time

I recently received a nice plane hammer with a new infill plane I had made for myself. I thought I could make a few of these for give-aways and keep some for myself.

First batch of plane hammers: top to bottom Flame Maple,
Walnut burl, Curly Ash, Brazilian Rosewood, Ash & Cherry
I asked a machinist buddy of mine to make me some brass heads I could turn some handles for, these were the result. The heads are 4" total length including the wooden end and the handles are about 10" long.

A good buddy gave me some nice little pieces of desert iron wood which I turned and threaded onto the end of the head.

I thought these turned out pretty cool.
