if you google it, there are a hundred different designs to choose from.
I've made a couple of veneer hammers in the past and somehow, they just manage to "disappear". so, for another Covid Project, I decided to make another one.
I picked up some really nice wood remnants at WoodCraft and really like the look of Canary Wood. so I chose that for this project.
I first started with a prototype made out of HDU just to get the look and feel of what I wanted. then, a paper pattern and cut out with a bandsaw. (it ain't rocket science).

then the groove for the brass piece is cut on the table saw. the brass piece is cut from a larger flat stock with a hacksaw. buffed to a high shine and 5 minute epoxy secures it in place.

I can't find the photos right now of how the through tenon was cut.
will post those later when they surface.

now, if only I had some veneer projects to work on !!

Very nice, John! It's been a long time since I've done some hammer veneering with hot hide glue and I don't think my veneer hammer is around now. I like yours so if/when I make another I'll 'borrow' your design - looks like it will work pretty good. :grin:
