DIY Thor Hammer (Mjolnir) From 100 Year Old Beam

Using traditional woodworking techniques to build a Thor Hammer

So this build was a fun one. I needed a carvers mallet for my workbench and I got a bit too aggressive. Instead of a traditional mallet i went way way over the top and made a Mjolnir, which if you don't know is A Thor Hammer. Yes, the god of thunder, his hammer. Its a solid 15-20 lbs. and is a ton of fun. I have always been a fan of super hero movies for some reason. If you aren't familiar, Thor is the god of Thunder and is adapted to be in his own Marvel comic series. In the series, he wields a hammer that only himself and a select few with magic powers can even pick up! So the hammer in theory weighs so much no mortal man can touch it. So i figured, why not make on!

In the video I walk you through some traditional woodworking techniques on how i made the hammer, and i also smash a ton of stuff at the end. This may not be a traditional build from my end, but i hope you enjoy!
