Finished the four hammer/mallet brackets

Parent Project: 

Hammers and mallet mounted in left door of the wall tool cabinetI pushed and finished all four of the 'hammer' mounts last night. This meant mounting the Blue Spruce round mallet and the Warrington hammer (i.e. cross-peen hammer).  I actually took a picture of the finished brackets this time. I sped this whole process up by using the band saw much more. Basically, I took a 3" thick piece of some wood or other from the farm, cut it to width on the bandsaw, figured out where the hole should be for the tool. I used the drill press to cut the holes into the block, but not all of the way through. Then I cut a curve out of the bottom half of the block so I don't have to go through so much material with the mounting screws. This has the secondary effect of opening up the tool holder opening I just drilled in the top of the block.
