    Plumb autographs are definitely not common and well sought after. If you are a collector it’s a super nice piece to have, if you are just a user you could sell that and buy several NICE users in its place.

    an oldie but really nice...looks kind of bad but the steel is super...not quite profiled right....handle is to die for(really narrow and super feel). Can't really appreciate it from these pics but haven't had one of these before and sure like it for a cruiser style.

    That's a great looking Cruiser. Don't see many Sagers in my area. Maybe I'll find one some day.

    Clearing some dead oaks that fell across a trail on our property. I got the logs moved but ran out of space on my camera so I didn't get any pictures of it.

    I couldn't agree more. Look up fawns foot in the dictionary and this is the pic you would see. The copper spacer rocks the boat. His attention to detail is inspiring.

    Well, you gotta do something with pennies.. A bunch of smashing and bashing and you got axe accouterments. Just kidding, I did not hit George Washington in the face with a hammer.

    Nice! I can just smell that split oak now! My stash is running low so I've had to settle for some ash I fell last year - no good! More oak is arriving on Monday from my pusher.

    couple new ones I put together. the smaller one I put together a month ago. The larger one I put together last night. The house handle required a lot of reshaping with a rasp, belt sander and sandpaper. It's an old USA stamped head that weighs about three and a half to 4 lb on a 28-inch handle.

    IMG_7552.JPG IMG_7553.JPG IMG_7554.JPG I picked this crosscut saw up an estate sale yesterday. It's in great original condition. The tooth set is good and it cuts fine. Looks like it's never been sharpened, maybe never used to cut until I tried it out this morning. Going to clean it up a bit, sharpen the teeth and make it a user. Photo next to the AS saw is for scale, and because I love the looks of that AS.

    Some better pictures. I put this axe together for a buddy who wanted a good working weight but short enough to easily carry. He doesn't know I made the sheath for it as well. He's expecting to buy the axe from me but I'm just going to give it to him as a present.

    Here's one I just got back from restoration. I do not know the gentleman well enough to post his name without his permission, but maybe you know his work well enough to come up with it on your own. Comes from the woods east of Sedro Woolley, Wa., about 35 miles upriver from me, strong Tarheel influence there. Pretty beat up, handle beyond salvage. 4 1/2 lb. KnotKlipper. Mockernut hickory stabilized for over a year, persimmon wedge, blackened green dyed jute wrap. Left a heavy convex, sharp enough to pop hair. 34" overall, 10" blade. Humbled to receive such a piece.
