Behold, Mjölnir!

A good friend of mine had a belated birthday party over the weekend. And unbeknownst to him but knownst to us, the theme for the party was none other than THOR, his favorite comic book hero when he was a kid. There were Thor paper plates, winged helmet party hats, a golden throne, a giant cardboard Chris Hemsworth, the works. Hey, we’re adults and we can do what we want. Don’t judge.

Another friend in the group asked me if I could make a hammer for the occasion and I happily obliged. When I started looking for images of the hammer, I found a dozen or so different versions between the movies and comic books. I couldn’t settle on any one of them, so I decided to take some artistic license and make my own version.

More pictures and construction details here.

Thanks, Stef! The carving was done by finding a pattern online that I liked, tracing it with my marking knife, and following it with the v-gouge from this cheap set. Worked well enough. See the pictures I linked to in the original description, you can see some of the process.

that pretty cool. It’s always good to have a super hero’s weapon handy.

It didn’t look that big at first but I pulled up the “construction details” and that thing is huge! You’re right the engraving takes the piece, from great to awesome. Thanks for sharing.

That’s fantastic! It’s a great version of Thor’s hammer. Looking at your friend’s face, I’m sure he loved it and had fun in the party.

Have your say...
