My Swap buddy was GrantA. It was good that Grant took some photos as I completely forgot
Here is what I made – a veneer hammer made from sycamore, walnut and brass plus a large mallet of hard maple and walnut

This veneer hammer was one of twelve that I made for a veneering class held at my shop – I had a couple left over
This photo is from the class

And here are a couple of Pennsylvania spice boxes with veneered drawers made with a veneer hammer

Phil – you aren’t the first to forget pictures (I might have once or twice). The veneer hammer is something I had to look up to learn what it is used for. I just keep learning more and more from these swaps. Now I have another technique to learn so I can make Harvey Ellis inlays.

Phil, nice tool for the swap! Much prettier than my store-bought veneer hammer.

Good job on the mallet and hammer. I have never used a veneer hammer but I do understand the mallet. Both are very nice and I would love to own both. Congrats on a job well done.

This is an amazing set. I really like the style of the mallet. The hammer is beautiful.

For the knurling I use a Wagner texturing tool. Very easy with a short learning curve

Excellent package Phil. I really like the veneer hammer. Never used one but I almost want to veneer something just so I can make one ;-)
