Heres the story of the Axe head who needed to be hung!
I also have a youtube video of me making this!
Watch and subscribe! :)
So, I posted an add on Kijiji saying ill hang some axe heads for people.. Maybe a special axe head or somthing with sentimental value type thing.
So A guy mailed me his, and I hung it for him!
He said he couldnt find a handle to fit it.
So I took a stab at making one!
Started by using the fro to split the log, trying to keep as much grain together as I could.
I made 2 handles.
The first one I cut out but chainsaw, the next one I used an axe to cut out the shape. I used an angle grinder to get rid of some more material. Palm sanded, then by hand. One coat of linseed oil so far.
For the fawns foot, I used my torch to give a different look. I personally like it! The grain is almost purple with the right amount of flame.
Overall length is 31”
Let me know what you think!
