Cost: $30. Expert wood workers of long-ago insisted that an axe was useless if they didn’t hang it (shape and attach the handle) just as they wanted it. Most of us nowadays are not that discerning, but anyone can feel the pride and joy of using a tool handle that they’ve created from scratch. In this workshop, you’ll learn to do just that, ending the day with your own custom tool handle! No experience required; native white ash handle stock provided. Please bring a bag lunch, and a tool head if you have one (axe, hammer or maul- if not, you’ll make a generic handle and we’ll discuss how to choose a quality tool head).
Location: Northwoods Stewardship Center 154 Leadership Drive East Charleston VT
