An Ax to Grind

Younger son, D, wanted a good ax for Christmas. We shopped all around and were not able to find what we wanted. So B took two old ax blades he had in his shed and got them rehung at Grambling’s Seed and Feed store, a quaint little place we have written about before. Here you can see B sharpening the blade.



He even took some leather scraps and made a blade sheath. I called it a “blade bra.”

On Christmas morning, he gave it to D, who seems pleased with it. Here he is working on some fat lighter for his  grandparents.


It is “George Washington” approved:

“Not the fake Christmas tree!”


---Just kidding!

It is great that he put it to good use right away.
