Default Hammer Head HELP!

I need help creating a hammer head. I have this picture right here and I can't make the head. I already have the handle. I have been trying to use a sphere, and morphing it with the scale tool and control vertex's. Need Help

Default Trouble with that

I always have a lot of trouble in joining NURBS...I don't know why but my shapes never connect. Even if they do, they never become one shape, it says they connected and then they are all still several different shapes with no connection. I hate it.
