Ĺ Hache

A new handle for an axe  which I came back from the French market with. The old handle was my inspiration.

The process in real-time:

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERABug infested and split, my repair has only delayed what is an inevitability, that is to say, the ash heap. As it sits on my workbench I make the decision to replace.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOut the door I do go.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERATreading my newly surfaced, (some plaster off the wall), path.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOver the planked path which gets renewed in its own good time from time to time.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAPassing, yes passing, the woodshed out back.

Moving on I take up a Coutre now which is no fro.

  1. I realize that this is to be about axes, but I enjoyed the side shots of the homestead as well as the topic at hand. What are the typical day-time high temperatures there in July and August?


  2. That’s fine. I show more of that on my other www site which is this one https://shinglemaker.wordpress.com/ if you didn’t know it. Homestead, I wish it were so. We are right at the edge of the village, you know, with villagers.

    Typical, it’s pretty typical here right now with temperatures just a bit over 20 C, 68 F. We are far north you know, like Portland, Maine.
