My seven year old daughter wanted to dress as Sacagawea for Halloween. To accessorize her costume I decided to make her a little tomahawk. This was my first lathe project after purchasing a Delta 46-460. I used some 2 X 4 pine for the handle and axe head, and finished it with a red aniline dye and wipe-on urethane top coat. I was fairly pleased with the results, particularly considering my very limited experience with a skew chisel.
On the day of Halloween my daughter decided that she would rather be a witch instead…… Kids, huh? Don’t you just love ‘em?
