Nice work! It's tough to hollow out a bowl.
Half Face Blades Bleeding Heart Tomahawk. I also have a Gränsfors Bruk but the photos are escaping me at the moment.
Harvesting fatwood with my RMJ Kestrel Feather
Squaring-up a "kromer", as they say it.
Bundaxt for notching.
Usually kromers include that grain that challenges.
Nice work, Ernest. That's the green hew I expect to see in black locust.
Yes, Black locus, Robinia as we call it, in either case Pseudo acacia, and my frame coming from this wood will be of the highest durability.
Come end of the day and the new stem set up on its trestle support and all laid out, even notched but it is treacherous leaving an unfinished side because moisture starts escaping and this effects the finish so in about 10 minutes I roughed off the waste between nothings and surfaced that one side leaving it in safe condition to proceed later, some bad weather coming.
Mr DuBois, you always have some great photos of wood and axes. Your last name is very appropriate for what you do. Thanks. John
Thank you John.
It's no name at all in fact. Taking some liberty with the French, (something a true French person would have a very dim view of), it is an expression: "Serious about wood".
Ernest - serious
du- the conjunction freely chosen.
Bois - wood
OK! I had translated as Ernest of the Wood, either way my above comment stands about your great photos of wood and axes. John
Ernest of the wood(s), it's fine with me too John, and again thank you.
The prepared timber stack begins to take on reasonable dimensions
while at the same time the rough material diminishes.
Drove by this and thought you guys might enjoy checking it out.
Look how recently the civil war was?!?
Future axe handles
Finally did the pallet axe rack thing. Fantastic! Where you been all my life.

Packing axes for annual axe making and using pilgrimage. In fact so helpful having the documentation of how these all fit their space for referring back to when the need arises, ("Oh yeah, the froe goes first then the log dogs", and so on and so on...)
