Topic tags/keywords: axe timber work

Here I am more recently, you know, on the case, as they say.

But in all seriousness this is the initial process of rough wasting that I do prior to the fine surfacing, which is done with the broadaxe, with the bandhacke, or another of those good working axes out of Austria.

My grandfather used to to it a lot when he supplied logs to us when we built a house. The tools were scarce, the wood was in abundance so that was the right way. (very close to Austria too)
Noways all we have to do is a push a button and push the log through some kind of saw that is why we do differently ( saving quite a bit of wood along the way)

Your grandfather’s look anything like this Carloz?
I waste no wood because it is used for heating.

Something like this.

But most often a regular axe that he would take with him while looking after cows.
I miss those days. The only electrical thing was a 25W bare bulb hanging from the wooded ceiling (and far not in every house) otherwise you would have no idea which century you are in. Still with primitive tools every man of the house would make better furniture than I can do with all power machinery I have. And I am probably the best woodworker on my street.

This axe you show looks Hungarian to my eye.
Slowly, slowly I am trying to achieve this aesthetic you describe

You are good ! Yes that part of the world belonged to Hungary (actually to Austro Hungary) at one not so remote point in history.

Have your say...
