Nice work. I'll send some more your way this winter if you want a few.
Still new here, but my recent hang and user.
Very nice work rehanging that axe. Any markings or additional details on it?
It's an America's Best axe, found at a swap shop. The only information I've been graced with came from this forum: http://www.bladeforums.com/forums/showthread.php/988275-America-s-Best
I split some wood today from the side of the house so we can get rid of it; it was mostly huge stumps which are difficult to transport without a truck (I had to use my neighbor's wedges for some of 'em, it sucked).
It has been there for years before we found the house and it is all punky with tons of fungi and there is no way I am going to burn it in our fireplace this winter.
Used Grandpa's 5lb Plumb for it all. Also, I did fell those trees successfully on my other Grandpa's property, thank you for the tips boys!!
Deadfall, that rafting pattern Plumb is sweet! Not a ton of those around. It probably has a hardened poll, can you tell if it does?
Oh yeah, it does
Tackled a big birch on the Flat Mountain Pond trail.
That's some serious chopping, Chris! That birch is lovely wood...wish we had it here...beats the crap out of our aspens...
Water Birch (Betula occidentalis).
Thanks. This one was OLD. Lot of heartwood and knotty. Still some nice chips and a few plates. Can't beat that.
Nice work chopping. thanks for the pics
cut up a big oak the past week that came down last october in a freak snowstorm, still more trees to cut up yet as well, what a mess that storm made here in southcentral PA. mainly chainsaw work but my main work axe got some work in too(driving wedges and a chop here and there). either way woodswork pics with axes pictured. :thumbup:

do you see 3 users axes in the pic?
tree took around 4 hours to cut up myself with a few quick breaks, 7 loads to move with the trailer a few days later. Now in a pile awaiting the maul.
Cutting Douglas fir in Idaho 1 tree filled the truck (3/4 cord) all split with my 6# maul
Continuing to work on the Flat Mountain Pond trail. Met up with this beast of a big-tooth aspen.
This one made a lot of noise. So I was very careful. Finished on the uphill side with the top "branch". ~3' of cutting. Will have to go back.
If I may ask, what do some of you guys do for a living? All of these pics are making me curious.
I'm a massage therapist and a barista.
Tree Climber (arborist)
I'm in finance.
Volunteer trailwork. Best excuse to feed my axe addiction. Therapy would probably be a lot cheaper.
