Had a go at Re modelling an axe!

Recommended Posts

Had a cracked head laying about so gas axed the damage and unneeded weight out of it, re profiled and shaped it, then made a handle out of a standing dead ash pole! Sharp as a razor too :)ImageUploadedByArbtalk1383770799.920213.jpg.519ff9a5535fccf1d0dd2d758f01061c.jpg

Lovely.

 

Didn't do any re shaping but I did find an old elwell at my old mans in the summer. Reg round the edge then shaped with a file and then oil stone. All after taking a lot of the rust off and sanded and oiled the original handle.

 

Razor sharp it was. Bit dull now as have been using it quite a bit on day to day jobs.
