Make A Brass Hammer
Date: Wednesday June 9th, 2021
Time: 6:30pm - 8:30pm EST
Hammers are a very ancient tool dating back to our cave dwelling relatives who attached sticks to rocks. It seems there are a large lot of us who collect hammers. One of the ways I increased my collection was by making more than a few of my own.
In this session we're going to be a bit more refined than our ancestors and use some modern materials and techniques. It's nothing complicated and it can all be done with either power tools or hand tools or even a combination of the two. Using a bit of brass rod, some wood and basic tools we'll fashion a custom made hammer suited exactly for your hands. The only question that remains is a philosophical one...Does one need a hammer to make a hammer? Stay tuned...
