BullHammer, is a homage to my great-grandfather...whom I never met. He was a slim farmer in rural eastern Iowa. He grew crops and raised cattle. One of his bulls had an attitude problem; go figure. It would grunt and snort at anyone who approached the fence; this included great-grandpa. When the bull acted up toward him, he would hit the bull between the eye with a ball peen hammer.

One spring the area was hit with a tornado, and sadly the bull broke it's leg in the storm. The local butcher bought the bull and took it to his shop. The butcher shot the bull between the eyes...and the bullet bounced off the bull's skull. This happened at least two times before bull finally died.

I am newer to woodworking, though I grew up hanging on to my father's shirt sleeve as he swung a hammer and fixed pretty much everything and anything. As I got older, I ended up working with him on various projects: decks, houses, ect... He taught me most everything I know about working with wood and so many other things about life.

I am not really a "weekend warrior". I'm more of a weeknight warrior. I'm still new to woodworking as a hobby (really only getting started in 2014). I have found some great tools on Craigslist and through friends, so I have a great setup for what I need.
