Sometime ago I mention I could use a Broad axe and adze. I wanted them to help removing some of the dirty bark before sawing logs on my saw mill. Mauricio found a broad axe in an antique store for a better price than any I had seen and we made a deal. Its been sitting in my shop ever since, annoying me because it needed a handle.
We’ll today I decided i should use a draw knife for something. Don’t you know that adze jumped out from under the bench and up on top screaming “pick me” “pick me”.
So I dug out a piece of straight grained ash and grabbed the draw knife. Slowly the handle emerged (ok maybe there was some bandsawing in the middle).
The smaller one is a handle from a flea market. I can claim I made it, I just installed it. I did have to make the wedge however.
