Compact hammer for smaller woodworking projects

This stubby hammer doesn’t represent the peak of tool smithing. But, the darn thing is so useful in my workshop everyday. It’s a tiny hammer suitable for brads and ¼-inch or smaller diameter dowels. I had made my own previously, with a finely crafted White Ash handle. It is beautiful. Yet it remains unused and this little fellow gets the daily use. Its small size and balance suits the small dowel driving in my toy making.
