One of my passions is to find old axes and bring them back to once again be a useful tool. I've been looking for this Rockaway pattern for some time now and finally found one yesterday at a local flea market. When I woke up today I decided to go ahead and work on it. Pictures before.

After pictures. I was able to reuse the handle by moving the head down 3/4".

Very cool, and a nice axe! How about a pic of that cool trout cut-out on the wall above the stolen game land sign? :) Did you make that?

Very cool stuff!
 
I thought everyone had a sign?
I didn't know that any of those existed that didn't have at least one bullet hole in them?
 
Those signs must grow on trees, I've seen several along the back PL of my hide out in Hanging Dog. Guess the locals use them for that last minute check on their sights. Yeah, got a "dead" one hanging in my shop.
