Finally gluing up the shims in the #hulkfistmallet . I decided to go all in on the handle and glued it all inside and out, rather than inside only in case I needed to replace the handle at some point. After all the carving and detail work that went into it, there’s no way I’ll be making another. This will be a one of a kind piece of functional art.
While gluing, the body and handle are taped off to prevent glue squeeze out interfering with the colors and finish. With the shims in, I think the hulk looks a little like wolverine. In a day or so, I’ll trim off the adamantium shims with the bandsaw and grind it all down, probably with a belt sander. There will need to be some green touch up after its all sanded down.
Almost time to smash stuff. Hang in there!😉
