Honey DO

I was asked by our church craft group to make some wood hammers that they can paint and sell them at the craft fair at the end of this month. So I did. I made 12 and broke 2 so I am down to 10. My bad. I had some old scrap 5/4 pine lying around the shop and used that. We had a sample of one that I used as the template. It’s an easy project. Just cut out the hammer on the band saw, router a keyhole slot on the back for hanging, quick sand, glue on the close-pin and give it to the craft ladies to paint. The picture on the right is the sample that says Honey Do List. Not exactly a high skilled project but fun to do.

Bob:
Cute project! I’m not sure that I want all those “Honey does” in one place. I wouldn’t be able to say “I forgot”!

Just finished up a few Bob. Super cool idea. I made up a few shaped like screwdrivers too. They came out pretty good. Were having a fund raiser at church next weekend so I’ll see how they do. Thanks for posting the pictures. They were a lot of fun to make.

Thanks Fonz, Let me know how they did please. I like the screwdriver idea too. Also welcome to LJ’s.

Gregn, I try to use the scrap in different ways so I don’t have to throw out much. Just cheap I guess.

Thanks again to Bob for posting his idea. Here’s some pieces of some

that are laying in the shop. I have to get in the habit of taking before..during..and..after pictures. These were kind of experiments. I make and sold around 100 of the screw drivers, hammers and crescent wrenches.
