New handles for old axe and adzes.
imagine that metal might have been melted
To some it will be a trash piece of metal, to others a wonderful piece of history and beauty.
Here a few pictures from the blog series about axes and adzes.
Blogs can be found here: http://lumberjocks.com/mafe/blog/57370
1. French axes with new Japanese inspired handles.
2. Rough cut to shape.
3. Carpenters adze.
4. Fitting the head.
5. Gutter adze with good grip handle.
6. Shaping with a draw knife.
The carpenters adze in use. ;-)
Perhaps this can inspire to bring old tools back to life.
