Light Hammer Mk1



18″x 6″x 4″
Wood, LEDs, Mercury Switch

This is the first LightHammer, created in the summer of 2011. The handle is constructed from several sheets of plywood, and the head is a length of 4×4 lumber. Each LED is wired in parallel to a single mercury switch located in the handle. While crude in comparison to later designs, the Mk1 has proven incredibly robust and has yet to break after four years of use.
