Awesome dad forges Thor's hammer for his 4-year-old son

When redditor Crux1836 asked his son what he wanted for his fourth birthday, the boy replied, "A Thor hammer ... a real Thor hammer!" And so, like any dutiful dad, Crux1836 headed to the forge, because doesn't every father have a forge and anvil in his workshop?

As he explains on reddit, he started with a piece of steel square tubing, because it needed to be "something large enough to represent the hammer, but light enough that a 4 year-old could hold it." He walks through the rest of the process, ending with a fantastic replica of Mjolnir that's small enough -- and light enough -- for the birthday boy, but still mighty enough to take on Frost Giants.
