I did this at the PEP1 event! Not best handle but it's possibly the prettiest
"Hundreds of years from now it will not matter what my bank account was, the sort of house I lived in or the type of car I drove... But the world may be different because I did something so bafflingly crazy that it becomes a tourist destination"
For this axe head, I chopped down a Saskatoon standing dead pole/branch. I used a knife then a draw knife to peel, shape and smooth the handle. Then I split the end and made some wedges, put the head on and was a snug fit, then knocked a wedge in and finished it. Now Paul has a new axe with character for his tool rack!
