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.
