Donations as of 16 Sept 2019: $660 donated. $10 more our minimum goal! Let's beat last year's total of $99 more than the minimum!

* "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" Problem Logging In?

If you get an "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" error when you try to log in, you need to be sure you are accessing the board with a url that starts with "https://ecauldron.com".  If it starts with https://www.ecauldron.com" (or "http://www.ecauldron.com") you will get this error because "www.ecauldron.com" is not technically the same website as "ecauldron.com". Moving to the more secure "https" means it is more picky about such things.

Clay is a good option as well, and easier. Thank you and I will post pictures for sure!

 
I've did one with clay it got a bit bigger than I expected so I'm gonna hang it in my car, I'l do a new smaller one for me and better looking too, for fist time was ok, but if I'm gonna take on my neck I want a better one.

Wood is harder to do and any critical mistake makes me start all over again on a new piece of wood, and I also don't have the tools to work with. But one day I'll make one of wood.

Anyway I'll post pictures soon ;)

Yes, it's quite a bore without some lore!

Works for me! I'm pretty short anyway.

I'm searching for a Thor Hammer but they are quite expensive because of the shipping costs, so I though to make myself one, it would even have more value and greater meaning, but I don't have a forge or tools to make a iron hammer, so my questions are:

  • Can I make a wood Thor Hammer?
  • Is there any inconvenience, or only metal is allowed?
  • If it is allowed to be made of wood, what wood should I use, is there a sacred tipe of wood or one with lore meaning?


I was thinking of making one of ash wood, because Yggdrasil is an ash tree.

 
Couldn't you purchase a wooden handle sledgehammer from a hardware store and carve the decorations on it with a dremel or a knife? Just curious

The topic is more directed to a small hammer worn round the neck rather than an actual full sized sledgehammer. Although I do love the idea of heathens carrying sledgehammers in a similar manner to some Sikhs carrying a Kirpan.

Oh ok I thought it was more on the lines of an alter item. I actually do carry a 3lbs sledgehammer in my jeep not for any other reason other than as a item of faith.

Is there a particular reason you keep it in your vehicle and not in your house?

That is a pretty funny mental image. I can say from experience when I was studying smithing that carrying a hammer is not a decision that one makes lightly. ;)

Honestly I don't have a particular reason. I'm a gunsmith and ex military so I have a mixture of tools and weapons in my jeep. I think mostly because I am always in my jeep. It is kinda funny now I think of it. When I have people in my car other than my wife and kid they always ask why I have a sledgehammer lol

A Reminder:
Hi Doc -

Just wanted to let you know that this particular member hasn't been online in quite a bit, and that the thread itself is around two years old. I realize it's a bit difficult to check the age of a thread via Tapatalk, but it's not impossible; please try to do so in the future. Resurrecting threads isn't a terrible thing to do, but your reply to the OP isn't likely to be seen by them, and if you have something you want to discuss, we'd prefer you just start a new thread rather than resurrect an old one if at all possible.

This is of course a reminder, and not a warning. Feel free to contact a member of staff privately if you have any questions.

Thanks!
HarpingHawke, TC Staff

FWIW, my SO keeps a machete lodged between the driver's seat and center console of his Toyota Corolla. And we live in the outskirts of Philadelphia.  We brought it on a camping trip maybe two years ago, and it's stayed there ever since.

He's not heathen. But I think it's funny, and from a heathen perspective, our cars are as much an extension of our homes as anything, if you have any sort of commuter lifestyle. So I think it's appropriate in the same type of way!

Lol. I am generally only armed with folding knives and boxcutters so I find the choices other people make interesting. I've known people who keep their hunting rifle in a rack in their truck, but that gave me the mental image of someone armed with a sledgehammer chasing deer through the forest during hunting season.
