This is a weighted hammer that I started as a carving project a long time ago as a bit of fun. I decided to turn it into a leather-faced weighted mallet to use with my hold-fasts, and other assemblies.
I messed around with some carving on the handle - I'm quite pleased with how this turned out. In hindsight I should've used something more chunky like oak, but woulda coulda shoulda - and this would never be here if not for the two scraps of pine I had lying around!
Hope you enjoy the final assembly, let me know whatchya think!

If you can't make a hammer without using a hammer, how did they make the first hammer? The world may never know.....

Awesome job! I really need a hammer with such a big bezel/opening for the rawhide leather to go into. I'd do mine with copper as I'm to afraid to work with lead.. I probably already get enough via polishing raw silver (in) ore lol

I remember these, If I remember correctly the hammer is not only for hitting material without damaging the striking surface but to also provide a "deadblow" which is when you can hammer an object and the lead core prevents the hammer from bouncing, my grandpa would use them as a carpenter and general handyman
Guardry Vor year
I believe it was more of a deadblow before he stuck the lead puck in place with epoxy, you can hear the rattle of little balls that acted as the blow softener by centrifugal force, It definately still is more deadblow than a regular hammer though 😀

That is a hide hammer. It might be weighted with lead, but unless the striking surface is lead it's not a lead hammer. Irrespective it's nice workmanship.
The Golden Path
It's meant 'for' lead not made 'of' lead. You want soft hide in the head so you won't mess up softer metals, like lead.

Obviously we are not all oblivious of that. Many of us were probably expecting to see the faces of the hammer head being made of lead. When I saw the title, I also though briefly of a dead blow hammer.
