I received a letter from Eric, in West Palm Beach Florida a few days ago and wanted to share it with you.
Eric recently completed a version of my veneer hammer following the instruction I gave in these previous posts-
The veneer hammer I made was originally going to be another chapter in my book, The Unplugged Woodshop,
but due to space restrictions on the printed page, it was destined for the cutting room floor.
Eric did a fantastic job making his version of the hammer and I especially like the bead detail on the handle.
Great job Eric,
and thanks again for sharing this with us~
I enjoy reading your blog on a regular basis and plan on making several of the projects in your books. I especially connect with the idea of making things by hand, an idea I’ve been toying with for many years. Anyway, here are a few pictures of my version of your veneer hammer. I used some Tigerwood (Goncalo Alves) I had for another project. The bead around the edge was a lot harder than I had planned but I think it came out OK.
Thanks for the inspiration,
