I found myself needing a mid sized wood axe and i just could not bring myself to buy a cheap plastic handled one so here is what i came up with.

Thanks Alan, it will be used for general purpose from chopping to some splitting for fire wood for my camp ovens.

 

Thanks Jutte, the head weighs 1.2 kg

That is very nice.

 

I was buying some saw parts the other day and I was checking out a medium one-or-two handed Stihl axe.

 

I like yours a lot better.

Well thanks heaps fellas for your feedback, much appreciated and Tim....don't be discouraged as I have buggered up my fair share too but keep at it and it makes it all the more worthwhile when things come together.

 

That being all said, I would love a power hammer.

Excellent! I am not much of an axe maker (not at all, actually). But I respect what you have done, it looks great. Nice work.
