Really, what can you make with a hammer….

I’m sure I’ll be telling you about fun things to do with a hammer over time, but I thought I’d just give you an idea of what can be done.  All of these pictures are of samples I made for Metal Forming A and B, last year at school.  Keep in mind that all of these started as flat sheets of metal!
