This is my first Axe Restoration experiment ever. I picked up this axe for $5 at the local flea market. I wanted to make something unique, so I decided to electro-etch a design in the axe head. I then went in with a rotary tool to bore out the etch even deeper and giving it a unique roughed up effect. For the handle, I constructed it similar to a knife with a full steel tang running throughout the handle. For the scales I used a beautiful pieces of Walnut and Maple. I really liked how this axe turned out and I enjoyed restoring it (But enjoyed testing it even more). Let me know what you think!
