This is a shoemaker’s hammer I found long time ago. I had almost forgotten it in my toolbox; I decided that was time to do something with it and was the best candidate for a texturing hammer!
I left it to soak in vinegar
3 days later
With a bit of filing and sanding the job was done
After the hardening
As it looks now
Here is a short video if like to watch. Now, in one of the comments a viewer said that the process of wrapping and stitching the leather on the handle was short to see; he asked me if I could make a video showing the process in more detail, so I made one.
I thought you may find it usefull, so I post it too.
All the best
