Another little project.
This summer I found in my fathers garden shed an axe without a handle. It was pretty rusty. I cleaned it with a metal brush and saw this:
The stamp says that it was made in 1982:
I thought it would be nice to make a new handle.

Sawing the shape on a bandsaw
Sawing the chicks (for I was going to make a 3d knob on a handle end)
Rough shaping with a diy tool
I made this tool from a file
