Custom Brass Hammers
Create your own set of shop hammers using brass stock and a chunk of hardwood. You’re sure to pick up a few new skills along the way.
Small brass hammers come in handy more often than you’d think. The compact design makes them perfect for chopping out mortises or the dovetails. Plus, the heft of the brass heads makes them easy to use from a comfortable, seated position without taking full-force swings. And you’ll find a brass hammer incredibly useful for adjusting machinery parts, or even hand tools, without marring or damaging them. You can choose from the two sizes shown or make them both.

The United States Customary System of Units (USCS or USC), more commonly referred to as the English or Imperial system, is the standard set of units for our plans. It uses inches and feet for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are in the United States, and it is the one we have traditionally offered on this website.
The International System of Units (SI), more commonly referred to as the metric system, is the alternative set of units that we have available for some of our plans. It uses millimeters, centimeters, and meters for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are outside the United States. These plans are provided by our business partner, Australian Woodsmith, and are based on the original Woodsmith plan. However, dimensions and other elements of the plan may vary between the metric and standard versions. Be sure to double-check the plan before building.
