I found a small hammer head in a box of stuff I got at a second hand store. It’s about time to make a handle for it. I could use a small hammer and seeing that it’s more for gentle tapping than heavy whacking I don’t have to be too particular on the wood species. I found an off cut of cherry that fits the bill nicely, and who doesn’t enjoy working with cherry?

I like to sit down and make handles, all sizes. Yep, a favorite of mine is cherry wood. It looks real pretty with that color. But more important is it don’t crack. I’ve made some ax handles and such out of what you know as camelia wood, real hard wood, and after I’m done a crack shows up Anyway, I always set that cherry aside if I come by it. I hope you post some of your work.

Have your say...
