Works rather well for detail work haven’t used it too much as it’s still been heavy work but now it’s getting warm I’ll be making things again more now so it’ll get some useVery nice work Brill. Not sure if I’d fancy using it, looks like it could remove a finger or two in the wrong hands !
Work wise hedglaying in season mostly then the rest of the time general outdoor carpentry lots of gates sometimes bespoke nice onse and fences and also repairs I had a Facebook and Instagram under bear woodcraft. Went self employed in 2014 I’ll make anything if asked really doing a children’s mud kitchen for the village play group currentlyThat reminds me Adrian, text incoming.....
What sort of stuff do you do Brill ?
Prettt much what was there before basically a branch shoved it thought it deserved better and the boxwood was nicely figurative as it’s usually a bit blandThat looks like a handy thing to have love that handle, the shape and the figuring looks so much better and fitting than a simple cylinder of wood stuck on a bit of metal
Impressed - you're too modest - that's much better than just 'shoving a branch through'.Prettt much what was there before basically a branch shoved it thought it deserved better and the boxwood was nicely figurative as it’s usually a bit bland
Thankyou couldn’t remember the actual name of them and the bench not sure it’s get much use I prefer my William Lennon boots lol I use an old stump on legs for my carving very handyImpressed - you're too modest - that's much better than just 'shoving a branch through'.
It's a side axe, so sometimes they offset the handle ('up' in your picture) to clear knuckles from the wood.
If you have the space -how about a French clogmaker's (sabotier) bench - basically a big rough old tree stump raised off the ground by 3 legs with a flattened top and wooden additions to wedge the clogs in. Useful for allsorts.
