wooden cutout of a hammer with a clothespin to hold a list of "to do projects"This is a woodworking project. Great gift for dad for Father's Day. Just slip that list of projects into the clothespin. And don't forget to put at the end of the list something like, "There's a piece of apple pie in the fridge with your name on it!"

  1. Using the template, trace hammer onto pine board. The PDF includes a full size template for the hammer.
  2. Cut out and sand all surfaces lightly. Slightly round edges of the handle only. You can use a router with a round over bit for this step, but if you don't have a router, just sand the sharp edge until slightly rounded.
  3. Mix medium brown paint, approximately one part paint to 5 parts water, in a shallow container.
  4. Dip a rag or sponge into mixture and apply to the front, back, and edges of the hammer. Let set for a couple minutes and then wipe dry with a soft cloth. Let dry completely.

  7. Glue the clothespin in place, using the picture as a guide.
  8. Print "Honey Do" on the hammer head with the white paint pen.
  9. Attach hanger to back of hammer head as shown.
