Thread: Hachets and hand-axes ?.

    Default Hachets and hand-axes ?.

    Hello,

    I once thought that for any wood work other than breaking large firewood into kindling, hatchets were vastly underpowered. In recent months and years I've discovered how much I love the darn things, but I never realized their potential for large-scale lumbering. I stumbled across this video, and have to say that it seems remarkably simple.

    I have a log of big-leaf maple about that size, and I need to break it down to make bowstaves, so I think I'll try this method out for myself to see how easy it really is. The thing I'm most excited about is that this gives me further excuse to not own a chain-saw (I hate powered saws of all kinds, actually. Bit of a phobia of mine.)

    Any of you done this sort of work before?


    thanks
    jackyjoy

    Going back and adding a link in your other post got you banned. That makes you just another low life spammer.
