    Before and after of this Montgomery Ward Lakeside DB Cruiser I think it turned out great and can't wait to try it. Next project on the left.

    This one was passed down to me from my Dad. I put basic new handle on it and sharpened it. Not sure what make it is and it must be over 50yrs old.

    I have always heard of it being referred to as a swedish brush axe, they are used a lot by the hydro companies in ontario where I am from, that one was found in the bush by some hydro lines

    Finally got myself one of the famed Billnas 12.3’s. This one was restored with a hand carved 23” ash handle by BeaverCreek Woodcraft.

    For those wondering, I believe Matt has another 12.3 with a hand carved Ash handle up for grabs right now too ;)

    Question for all you experienced axe hangers.
    20190731_180858_HDR.jpg
    Do you, or, should I, cut relief notches in the handle for the ridges in the eye? The ridges are digging in pretty hard and closing the wedge kerf.

    @DarrylM

    Drive those ridges all the way down to the shoulder of that haft. Being hard to get set is their beauty :)

    First set a wedge in temporarily, enough to maintain the kerf width. Then drive the ridges in clean and tight without having to carve.

    That's an excellent tip, one I wish I'd known about before now! (Hand slapping forehead).
    I suppose an opportunity to try it is just an overstrike away, lol.

    A very small selection of some of my axe collection. I have been using these on my cabin build this summer. I love my Billnäs axes!

    I just couldn't find any love for the color of this haft no matter what I do to it.

    Before

    So I built me a little fire

    Finally finished hafting, learned a few things. Pretty happy with it as-is, plan to finish "de-housing" the oversize shoulder and smooth out the transition to the head.
    20190814_184349_HDR.jpg

    Got a good pinch on that head with the wedge.
    20190814_184427_HDR.jpg

    This particular handle has a portion of heartwood on one side, seating the head, it dug into the softer sapwood side, and now the bit is slightly out of line with the haft. I can see it, but I can't get a picture of it.

    In addition to some shaping, sanding, oiling on the handle, this ol' head needs a bit of file and puck time and then we'll see what work it can do.

    This thread is dangerous for me to look at. I'd love to find a head worth sprucing up and hafting, it just isn't easy in a part of the world where there aren't many trees. Maybe, I'll find one on vacation over the next few weeks.

    @Expo 6 , as a card carrying enabler, I feel obligated to suggest that you begin your search on eBay for a quality vintage candidate for restoration.
    If you'd like I'd be happy to provide you with some links to get you started.

    @Ptpalpha I don't currently have an address that receives packages so I think I'm safe from the endless options that eBay would provide... for now :rolleyes:

    New Tommy axe in the mail from @Kelly W and it’s fantastic! Thanks so much! I don’t care who you are, but if there’s an axe with your name stamped in it then you just gotta have it :D And a fine polished edge to top it off....lovin’ it!

    Found an old advertisement from popular science magazine in 1941 about the Tommy axe and it sold me :)
