No, I LOVE my Bosch tools. I just thought the Colt would give a nice perspective on the size of my hammer.

I bought the big hammer when I lived in Japan. They are found on every construction site over there. The Japanese still use a lot of pegged joinery on the framework of their houses. They use the big hammer a lot. I use mine mostly to drive stakes in the ground where it excels. But mostly, I just had to have one . . .

Very nice, Herb. Did you cut the wedge slots with a bandsaw?

Paul,
I did cut the wedges and wedge slots on the band saw.

WARNING: I SHOULD MENTION HERE THAT BEGINNERS SHOULD NOT TRY TO ROUND THE END OF THE HANDLE TO SHAPE THE CURVE ON THE ROUTER. GO TO THE DISK OR BELT SANDER FOR THAT. GOING AROUND THE END TO RADIUS THE EDGE IS OK BUT UNLESS YOU ARE VERY EXPERIENCED, ROUTING AROUND END GRAIN IS DANGEROUS.

Thanks for all the compliments, glad you enjoyed this thread.
