"Hundreds of years from now it will not matter what my bank account was, the sort of house I lived in or the type of car I drove... But the world may be different because I did something so bafflingly crazy that it becomes a tourist destination"
For this axe head, I chopped down a Saskatoon standing dead pole/branch. I used a knife then a draw knife to peel, shape and smooth the handle. Then I split the end and made some wedges, put the head on and was a snug fit, then knocked a wedge in and finished it. Now Paul has a new axe with character for his tool rack!
It's a bit rough, but I don't mind letting a giligan borrow this one with 30 seconds of training. The handle is made from a "scrap" of white oak that was found laying in a pile of MDF and other garbage. It still needs some oil, but it has already been put to work.
"Now he called his name Noah, saying, 'This one will give us rest from our work and from the toil of our hands arising from the ground which the Lord has cursed." -Genesis 5:29 (NASB)
