Legal Disclaimer:

Many of the hammers pictured above were made as gifts by me and presented as such. No endorsements are

(But they all kept their hammers and most repaid me with an autographed photo! I think they liked their hammers.)

There are simple steps to making a beautiful keepsake hammer as a gift for someone special. I have personally made many hundreds over the past 11 years. Everyone adores these hammers when they receive one with their own name or company name cut clean through the wooden handle. I haven't held anything back in this presentation. I reveal all of my tips, tricks and secrets learned over 11 years and many hammers. I finally figured out how to deal with all of the huge challenges involved in making these very deep cuts clear through an extremely tough hardwood. If you have a scroll saw and would like to save yourself some major trial and error, I show you how I finally learned to do it.

You are purchasing a single DVD. It is an educational DVD which will teach you how to cut letters through a solid wooden hammer handle with a scroll saw. If you don't have a scroll saw, have access to a scroll saw, or are not planning on purchasing a scroll saw, don't buy this DVD unless you are giving it as a gift to someone who has a scroll saw.

Money Back Guarantee

I offer a 30-day money back guarantee. When you get your How-To DVD's, if you feel that I have not truthfully represented the information presented on each DVD, I will happily refund your money. Just return all materials intact and ask for your refund. If your DVD will not play (that happens sometimes despite great quality control) I will send you a replacement immediately. I don't need the old one back in that case.


I am not some giant corporation trying to sell you something I know nothing about. I am a craftsman just like you trying to share really rewarding discoveries. I cannot guarantee your individual success nor can I guarantee that you will be able to turn items I have described and shown you how to make. Everyone has different skills and abilities. Some of you learn faster, some slower. I also cannot guarantee your success for the same reasons. What I am guaranteeing is that the material represented above accurately describes my personal experiences, including the many students I have personally taught to do the same thing. If you did nothing other than make these items for yourself and for your family and friends, it would be a great investment; cheap at twice the price!

Whatever your choice, I wish you good success and God's speed. Whenever you can, share this info with a kid. You were one once yourself.

If you would rather have me make a Cool Hammer for you,

here's how to order:

These days I do hammers by special order. Simple hammers are $70 plus S&H. Includes up to 18 letters. Each letter over 18 (28 max) is $3. Ask me if you have over 18 letters.
Name to Engrave up to 18

Ax Handled more fancy hammers are $100 plus S&H. Each letter over 18 (40 Max) is $3. Ask me if you have over 18 letters.

Name to Engrave up to 18

I still do a fair number each year, many at Christmas time. Others are for birthdays, retirements, thank you presentations from builders to customers, or just to acknowledge a special handy-man or professional trades person.  I have done several for Project Managers, Architects, Community Planners, Real Estate Professionals, Sports Facility Staff as well as sports figures themselves -- especially base ball players. I can actually cut names in the narrow part of a bat.

I once prepared a very special hammer for a project manager working on a highly recognized women's university who supervised a library remodeling which took several years. I actually inlaid a gold medallion into the handle at the request of the university.

I routinely laser engrave company logos onto the handle after I cut the names all the way through the handle.

If you are considering one of these special gifts and still have questions, just drop me a note and tell me what you have in mind.
