Please suggest me any good hatchets. I have my own woodworking workshop. and looking for good product suggestions because we are trying to share some ideas. you are making your own router table is our goal.
You might want to make a thread in the general axe section below the stickies threads - this one is dedicated to photos.
Welcome to the forums Elizabeth.
You may also want to specify the intended purpose for the hatchets.
great wooden work. I like the products. woow!! You made its handles!!! Did you make other wooden products? like wooden chairs and bench etc? or are you making your own router table
The Vaughan Supersteel Camp Axe is made in USA from 1080 steel. It's a good choice. Looks like they've recently discontinued their broad hatchet but their half axe or riggers axe would be almost equally handy in the shop. All will need a small amount of edge work to become the razor sharp tools they should be.
I wanted to buy a Hults Bruk Almike or comparable Gränsfors Bruk, but with a bunch of other things going on, I decided to hold off on a purchase. Then I remembered I had this one below. It was covered in surface rust so I sanded it down and voila. Don’t know much about it, but this little hatchet should do the job.
More than 20’ in diameter.
Another giant stump I drive by all the time. It was hard to get a photo of the information board in the glare but check out its history. Killed with fire, moving a few hundred yards here a 1/4 mile there.
I love the names of the two guys that dragged it with horse teams.
The top rh handle looked like Antler at 1st glance
Found this trade axe laying on the shore of the river in Northern Ontario.
That is a most fantastic find!
I see a cross stamped within a circle, is that what you see?
That is a true rusty treasure!
It's a Biscayne french trade axe circa 1675 to 1700. Amazingly still has a sharp edge.
What a fantastic piece of history...200+ years old.
I know nothing about the history of this hatchet. I inherited it, but I don't remember from whom. It has to be at least 100 years old. Somebody put green paint on the handle many years ago and it's almost all worn off. The head is still solidly attached, no wiggle at all.
My trusty old axe. It's had a hard life. It's on its second handle and now that one is getting pretty weathered from being left out in the rain too much.
Keep it out of the rain then! Lol. Is that an old True Temper woodslasher? Are there ridges in the eye?
It kind of looks like a council a little bit as well. You should clean it up and share your results with us!
Beautiful collection! Did you make the shaving horse?
