How to create hammer?? - newbie

Can someone help? How to create a hammer?

A few ways are possible:

  1. If it’s really simple, think out the coordinates of the vertices before hand and use a
    glBegin(GL_ what you want);

    You could even aply a texture to it to look better.

  2. Use a tool as 3ds max, maya or others that are there for 3d model creation, then
    2a somehow export their coordinates
    2b use a file loader for the model you created.

You can use vertex arrays or lists to speed things up a bit as well.
