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.

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

Looks great. I have so many tools with broken handles that need to be replaced. So many broken tools and so little time.:sorry:

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
