tool handles *PIC*

John K Jordan
When I get a fairly small diameter and very straight hickory I use a froe to split into handle blanks then put them in the barn loft to dry for a few years. I keep a good supply of axe, shovel, sledge, etc blanks on hand this way.

And yes, a new handle for the froe too.
