still way off let's go on a little bit better now all right I'm almost done rasping at I've use note no power tools only because I don't have them I would have used it if I did but you can see I think anyways you can see how much I've taken off with the rasp so the ax head goes on quite a bit of ways now I don't really know if these years or whatever they are supposed to come down past this I make it so that they do but i want the back of the axe the bottom be sitting near the shoulder that's what that's called i really don't know the right name for get in there here goes nothing well

and these jerseys are a pain so i'm almost at the top but the ears if that's what they're called or started to bottom out on the sides there so I'm gonna have to go back try and take the head off and rear a spit down so I was able to get that the head off you can see there where the ear got caught so I'm gonna have to rasp that down some all right we're almost at the top and try and pound run again Lily popped up so now I get the wedge in there

so I've got to get the wedge in there and as you can see it's a little bit too long

I'll take it off it up there alright that's going to fit so we'll grab some linseed oil alright

I filled the I in nicely I broke the wedge I don't know how much that matters but we'll see all right i'm gonna call this one done i got nice transition from the head to the handle i think especially on this side besides a little bit better and then the head or the wedge part it's perfect that's far from perfect but it fills the iron completely I'm pleased with it one of the third I've done a couple but never this this good so I'm pretty happy with it actually now to get out and chop some stuff with it thanks Scott night for the lesson a lot man you

let's go see what macho funny no no it's up for you I split my splitting
