Video Demonstrates How to Turn an Old Hammer Into an Iron Fist

It's fun to watch but you might not want to try this one at home.

Have you ever had an old hammer lying around that you don't know what to do with? What if you could turn it into a mighty fist?

That's what this YouTuber does in this video and it is quite a process. First, he removes the top metal part of the hammer from the wooden part.

He then proceeds to use a variety of tools to shape this metal part into a fist. He uses his own fist as a model for where the fingers should go. But wait! Something is missing! The fist has no thumb.

He then takes an extra piece of metal and turns it into a thumb that even has a nail on it. Once this is completed he melts it onto the hammer's head (fist?). Now it is really starting to look like an iron fist.

The YouTuber then adds little lines on the fingers to make them as realistic as possible. Finally, he cuts a long piece of wood into the exact size to fit the hammer's head.

He puts it in and squeezes the two pieces together and voila! You have an iron fist hammer.
