Another Mere Mortals ideal. This was a really fun project, I’m now in my 5th month of woodworking, im still a little green but was able to learn a ton with this project. Ofcourse I have to give props to Steve, wouldnt have been able to do it without his video.
Handle is made of Oak, the head is made of Walnut. Recently purchased the walnut that had been stored in a barn for 65 years, the tree was originally cut from property in South Eastern Virginia that was being flooded to make Lake Kerr around 1947. Picked up 30 planks 8 inches wide, 10 feet long, 1 inch thick for $300. Sounded like a good deal to me, however I havent purchased much rough cut lumber before, hoping someone could tell me if I came out on top with that deal.
thanks for looking !!!
