My Brother in law had this old hatchet he needed rehandled. He has beenmaking me some things out of metal recently that will soon be part of new projects for me. I wanted to return the favor, so I made this handle for his hatchet. Not like I really needed an excuse to make something out of wood.
It’s made out of bradford pear, and I was thinking it was a little thin, but I had another piece of BP that was even thinner and smacked it on the concrete a couple of times and it didn’t break, so i think this may hold up.
It’s just finished in boiled linseed oil, and has some very nice rays on the back and front of the handle.
