    This hewing broad axe head has been sitting in my shop for far too long.
    Time for a new handle.

    It appears to be blacksmith made from mid to late 1800’s, so I will make the handle by hand.
    I also didn’t feel like playing Tetris with my power equipment to get to the bandsaw.
    It’s a complicated handle, needs to be offset and canted.

    After much work with drawknife and rasp, I can fit the handle into the head.

    Found one of those on a construction project one time. Was buried and the pipeline plow dug it up.

    Super nice! Is the handle made of Hickory? May be camera perspective, but looks like the handle is a bit short for this kind of ax. Nice dog! Chuck
