Wooden #Nutcracker with Hammer smashes nuts - Nutcracker done with the lathe for wood, including hammer, which is also created with the lathe. You place the nut in the middle of the bowl (in the notch), and you hit them with a hammer. The shells of the nut can be put in the bowl below, along with nuts still to crush.  It is a kitchen tool that makes it easy and fun to crack nuts!
