A different Veneer Hammer

I loaned my regular wooden veneer hammer [pictured below] to a friend to hammer down some veneer on a project he is working on.

As it happens I need to hammer some walnut burl veneer down to a sewing machine cabinet top.  I will be using hot hide glue.  I describe the technique of hammer veneering in Hide Glue – Historical & Practical Applications.

I am going to borrow this unusual veneer hammer from another friend to get the job done.

I have no idea of the date of this veneer hammer, but it should do the job just fine.

  1. Upon examining the veneer hammer closely, I noticed a touchmark W GERMANY, so that makes it after 1949.
