Got a rustic axe you want to put to use? Learn how to turn a vintage axe into a usable tool. Think repair and restore instead of buying a new one!
This workshop is about as “Yukoney” as it gets since you’ll learn the history and terms for the axe, how to fix it up, how to assemble (a.k.a. hang) an axe and how to clean, treat and sharpen your tool. You’ll also be walking away with an antique tool that is hand-crafted and has it’s own unique story.
We’ve got axe heads and handles for you. If you have your own you want to bring and restore, please let us know- email
