I finished sharpening this pulaski axe for a customer. When I get items to sharpen without any edge protection, I generally return them with a sheath or similar. I started making a cardboard sheath for this, but it seemed too nice a design to be cut off and thrown away. I traced it onto a piece of leather to make the sheath pictured. I'd normally sew it together, but this tool leads a rough life in a garden shed. Rivets will do.
A recent wind storm gave me a maple and a mystery wood log. I started carving spoons from them. Both around 10" in length. The maple spoon is my favorite one yet.
