It is custom that when a person transfers from one military command to another that they get a piece of memorabilia to remember their time there. Most of the time they are given some sort of plaque with their name and dates served at that command. In this case something different was requested. I was asked to build a Thor’s Hammer for these two Coast Guard sailors to commemorate their service on the Pacific Tactical Law Enforcement Team. These folks really are the Hammer to the drug smugglers here on the West Coast. The hammers are made from oak and laser engraved with our laser machine. I used a solid oak dowel for the handles. They are finished with multiple coats of clear lacquer. My wife did all the rope work and I think she did a great job. This was a fun project and will hopefully be a conversation piece for years to come.
